Authorities continue to search for a man who invaded an Ozone Park home and assaulted a 46-year-old woman.
Police said the incident occurred at 8:15 a.m. on March 13 at an undisclosed location in the neighborhood within the confines of the 106th Precinct.
According to police, the woman was sitting on the ground floor of her residence when the perpetrator entered her home, grabbed her by the neck and arm, and demanded cash.
The victim reportedly screamed, prompting her husband — who had been upstairs — to run down and help her. Police said the suspect then fled out of the home empty-handed in an unknown direction.
No injuries were reported.
