(WJBK) - The Oakland County Sheriff's Office is looking for a suspect after two young girls said they were touched when a man broke into their house in Pontiac this weekend.
A grandmother was home with five children in the house in the 200 block of S. Anderson Street, which is near Auburn Avenue and Martin Luther King Jr Boulevard. Four of the children are her grandkids, and a neighbor was also staying over.
The grandmother told police she was awakened by her 7-year-old granddaughter around 5:15 a.m. Sunday, and that the girl said someone was in the house. The grandmother told police she came out of the bedroom and saw a man running toward the front of the house and that he jumped out an open window.
The 7-year-old told her grandmother that the man touched her lips and mouth. A 10-year-old girl also said she thought someone was touching her legs.
Deputies say they found obvious tracks in the snow that showed someone entered and exited the house via the front window. An K-9 unit attempted to follow the tracks but lost the scene a couple houses down.
Police say the suspect is described as a black man about 5 feet 10 inches tall with no facial hair, and with squared-off braids near the top of the neck line. He was wearing a blue plaid winter coat with burgundy pants, and possibly Nike high tops. Police say the shoe size looks to be an 11 or an 11.5. There was a tattoo visible on the back of his neck that may have been of a heart.
If you have information about this crime of the suspect, you're asked to contact the Oakland County Sheriff's Office.
