A man broke into a home in Hermosa Beach earlier this week on Wednesday and attacked a male resident and attempted to sexually assault a female resident. Police have released only a few details of the home invasion.
The couple was asleep around 10 p.m. the night before the Thanksgiving holiday when they awoke to find a strange man inside of their Hermosa home on Monterey Boulevard. The intruder physically assaulted the man and attempted to sexually assault the woman, who was able to fend her attacker off.
The intruder, described as 6 feet 3 inches tall and heavy-set, ran from the house. The couple did not know the man's ethnicity but described him as wearing a long-sleeve shirt and jeans. The couple's physical condition is not known at this time.
Hermosa Beach police have asked for anyone with information about the home invasion or security video that may help identify the intruder to contact detectives.
