Vancouver police are investigating a sex assault which happened overnight.
A 22-year-old woman was asleep in a home near 49th Avenue and Knight Street when she awoke to find a man standing in her bedroom.
Constable Brian Montague says a brief struggle ensued before the suspect fled.
A police team including a search dog were unable to track down the suspect, described as white, dressed in dark clothing, 6′ tall, and possibly in his 20’s.
Investigators have since determined the attack was sexually motivated.
