Police said the woman was sleeping in her vehicle when a man climbed inside and sexually assaulted her.

The woman was able to honk the horn in her car, which caused the man to flee the scene in his own vehicle.

Police are now looking for a suspect described as a Caucasian man with a medium build between 50 and 60 years old. He is balding with white hair that is curling at the ends, and has patchy facial stubble.
