Durham police investigators are asking for information about an incident that occurred last week near Robinhood Road.

A 14-year-old female told officers she got home from school Thursday afternoon and went in her house.

A short time later, a male entered the house through an unlocked door and attempted to sexually assault the teen. The teen fought with the suspect and was able to escape. The incident was reported to police Thursday.

Anyone with information is asked to call Investigator D.P. Brown at 560-4440, ext. 239 or CrimeStoppers at 683-1200.

CrimeStoppers pays cash rewards for information leading to arrests in felony cases and callers never have to identify themselves.
