CASSELBERRY, Fla. - Police are searching for a man they say forced his way into an apartment and sexually assaulted a young girl.
It happened Saturday in the gated Stonecastle Apartment complex in Casselberry, which is in Seminole County. Police say the man was armed with a gun when he broke in and attacked the girl. She did not have to be hospitalized.
Authorities used helicopters to search for the suspect from the air and canines on the ground. Investigators interviewed neighbors and combed the neighborhood looking for clues. Residents were recently warned about a rash of break-ins in the area and fliers were handed out.
Police are looking for a suspect described as a light-skinned, Hispanic man about 19 or 20 years old with a piercing on his lower lip.
Anyone with any information about this attack is urged to call police right away.
