Winnipeg police are looking for a suspect in a frightening incident at a Wolseley-area home July 31.

Police said they were called to the scene around 2:30 a.m., where they believe a man broke into the house through an unlocked door.

The suspect was confronted by two women, and committed what police are calling an “indecent act” before trying to force himself on one of them. She was able to fend him off and the man fled before police could arrive.
