A man who may have tried to sexually assault an elderly woman Thursday in Miami is still at large.

Miami Police are asking for the public’s help to identify the person who allegedly walked into a home through an open door on March 19.

He then, according to the victim, forced himself on her and tried to sexually assault her.
