Authorities in Batesville are searching for an alleged home intruder that attempted to assault a young woman on Saturday.

The Batesville Police Department received a 9-1-1 call at 4:45 a.m. Saturday morning reporting an intruder at a home on Washington St.

The road is located between S. Mulberry Street and Huntersville Road, near the Batesville Intermediate School.

“A 17-year-old female reported a male subject entered her bedroom and attempted to sexually assault her,” Batesville Police Chief Stan Holt said in a news release to local media.

The victim told police she fought off the man and he left the home.

The suspect is described as approximately six foot tall, thin build and wearing a dark hoody.

Police hope to gather more information that could lead to the identity of the suspect.

Anyone with information should contact the Batesville Police Department at (812) 934-3131. Tips can remain anonymous.

They are also reminding citizens to secure their homes by locking all doors and windows.
