The Curry County Sheriff's Office is looking for a man who assaulted an 85-year-old woman during a break-in to her Harbor home Wednesday night.
The man is described as about 30 years old, with a slim build, weighing 150 pounds and 5-foot-9 in height. He had short hair, was clean-shaven, was wearing dark pants and a white T-shirt and might have had a slight foreign accent.
No deputies were on duty at the time of the incident, so Sheriff John Bishop called Dep. John Ensley to respond from home. Ensley, with the assistance of IPH security, searched the area. An Oregon State Police trooper also responded from Port Orford to assist.
Law enforcement contacted two subjects on foot, but weren't able to locate anyone fitting the description provided by the victim.
