Police searching for man who burglarized home, sexually assaulted male occupant in DC

- D.C. police are searching for a man they say broke into a home early Sunday in Southeast Washington, sexually assaulted an occupant at gunpoint and left with some of the victim's property.

Officers were called to the home in the 1200 block of Massachusetts Avenue SE, near RFK Stadium to investigate the incident around 6:00 a.m., according to officials. The male victim awoke to find another man in his house, officials said.

The suspect sexually assaulted the victim at gunpoint and then fled the location with some of the victim's property.  Police did not say what items were taken or how the person got inside. Authorities did say there was no forced entry into the residence and that the attack does not appear to be random.

Officials say they are searching for a black male, 5'8", stocky build, and approximately 200 lbs. The man has medium to dark complexion, and was last seen wearing a black baseball cap, black T-shirt, and black shorts, according to officials.

Anyone who has information regarding this case should call police at 202-727-9099.  Additionally, information may be submitted to the TEXT TIP LINE by text messaging 50411.  The Metropolitan Police Department currently offers a reward of up to $1,000 to anyone who provides information that leads to the arrest and conviction of the person or persons responsible for an assault committed in the District of Columbia.
