Austin American-Statesman - - LOCAL BRIEFING -

Po­lice are look­ing for a man who broke into a North­west Austin apart­ment July 20 and tried to rape a 16-year-old girl.

Po­lice said the man forced his way into the apart­ment in the 7900 block of San Felipe Boule­vard, near Pond Springs Road and McNeil Drive, about 10:20 a.m. and tried to sex­u­ally as­sault her. He then punched the teen in the face and left the apart­ment with her cell phone, po­lice said.

The man could be driv­ing a ma­roon four-door Acura MDX, po­lice said. He is de­scribed as a light-skinned, heavy­set His­panic male, about 5 feet, 5 inches tall with a heavy ac­cent. He faces felony charges of at­tempted sex­ual as­sault of a child.

Any­one with in­for­ma­tion is asked to con­tact the child abuse unit at 974-8694.
