Suffield police are asking the public for help in finding a man who sexually assaulted a local woman at gunpoint during a home invasion.
Police say the woman was attacked in her home on Thrall Avenue on Friday night. She told police that a masked man armed with a handgun broke into her house, beat her and sexually assaulted her.
The woman called 911 shortly after midnight to report the attack. She was brought to a hospital for treatment.
The victim said the suspect was a white man, 25 to 40 years old and 6 feet to 6-feet-2-inches tall. He was wearing a red flannel shirt, a gray hooded sweat shirt, jeans, work boots and black gloves.
Anyone with information is urged to call Suffield police.
