A female was sexually molested and assaulted in the 1500 block of Spruce Place after a suspect entered the multi-unit apartment complex through an unsecured security door on Oct. 30, according to a Minneapolis Police Department crime alert.

The female encountered the suspect as he was going through her laundry in the common laundry room at the apartment. Following the assault the woman fought off the suspect, who then fled on foot.

The suspect is described as a 30 to 40-year-old black male with a medium complexion. He is approximately 6-feet tall and has a light build. At the time of the assault he was unshaven and had a short afro. He was wearing a red flannel shirt and a beanie hat while carrying a backpack.
