SHREVEPORT, LA (KSLA) -
Police are looking for a man who allegedly barged into an east Shreveport home Friday morning and tried to sexually assault the homeowner.
Officers were called to the home in the 7700 block of Creswell Rd. just before 9 a.m., after the woman called police. She told them that a man wielding a knife forced his way into her home after she answered the knock at the door.
The woman claimed the man then tried to sexually assault her before making off with a small amount of cash. The homeowner, while shaken, was not injured during the ordeal.

The man was last seen wearing all dark clothing, with a dark colored baseball style cap. Authorities are working at this hour to determine the identity and whereabouts of the suspect responsible for this crime.
