ROCHESTER HILLS — Police officials are looking for a man who broke into a local apartment and forced a woman to perform a sex act.

According to a police report, the man broke into an apartment at 1:18 a.m. June 13 in the 100 block of Woodview Court, in the Woodside Apartment Complex, near Rochester and Auburn roads.

The woman told police she was sleeping on her sofa when she woke to find a man standing over her. The man forced the woman to perform a sex act and then said, “Please do not call the police,” the report states.

The man left the area on foot and is believed to have entered and left the apartment through a sliding glass door.

Police arrived with a K-9 unit and tracked the suspect for approximately 100 yards before the dog lost the scent.

Two previously reported suspicious person complaints within the last two months may be connected to the suspect. Woodside Apartment Complex residents reported a suspicious person walking around the area on two separate occasions. In both incidents, the suspect left the area before police arrived.

A Michigan State Police sketch artist completed a composite of the suspect, who is described as a black man with a medium to dark complexion, approximately 5 feet 10 inches tall, and approximately 40 years old. The suspect may be facing home invasion and criminal sexual conduct charges, the report states.  

Those with information are asked to call the Oakland County Sheriff’s Office dispatch at (248) 858-4911 or Crimestoppers at (800) SPEAKUP.
