Authorities have released a composite sketch of a man sought in the rape of a woman inside of her Manhattan Beach home over the weekend.
The woman had just returned home when the attacker got into the house through the front door and sexually assaulted her, police said.
A neighbor told KTLA the victim is now afraid to be at her own home.
Police released a sketch of the suspect Wednesday in hopes of generating leads in the case.
He's described as a black man i his early-40s, about 6 feet 2 inches tall, of athletic build, with a medium complexion. He had short hair, and possibly a thin mustache. He wore tan shorts, a dark T-shirt and gray tennis shoes.
