Roanoke police are searching for a man suspected of an "assault with sexual implications" after he approached a woman in front of her home Saturday.
The woman told police Saturday evening that a short, thin man riding a bicycle approached her in front of her home on Bentley Drive in the Briarwyck subdivision, according to a news release from the Roanoke Police Department. The man, in his late 20s or early 30s, was reportedly armed with a knife.
Roanoke Police Department Commander Jeriahme Miller said the victim was "not physically injured," and that the suspect’s approach was "sexual in nature." Police are withholding additional details during the investigation.
Miller urged residents to contact the department, 817-491-6052, if they have information.
