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.
