HARRIS COUNTY, Texas -- Investigators on Wednesday asked the public for help in identifying the man who sexually assaulted a 63-year-old woman at her northwest Harris County home.

The crime happened on June 20, according to the Harris County Sheriff s Office. Deputies responded to an assault at an apartment complex in the 10000 block of Old Bammel North.

The victim said the suspect broke into her apartment by kicking in the patio door. He then raped her and threatened to kill her if she did not comply with his demands.

The suspect fled on foot but not before demanding money and other items from the apartment.

The victim was taken to a local hospital for treatment.

The suspect was described as a black male between 20 and 30 years old, approximately 5'9 -6' feet tall, of big build with a large belly. He had marks underneath both eyes. He was wearing a blue and white striped collar shirt, blue denim shorts, and black suede shoes.
