Police are looking for a man who assaulted a woman in her 60s Thursday after forcing his way into her apartment late Thursday morning.

The 64-year-old woman was walking to her apartment in the 4800 block of East Eastwood after a trip to the store when she noticed a man following her shortly before 11 a.m. Thursday, Lt. Dan East said. That’s southwest of Kellogg and Edgemoor in east Wichita.

She was unable to close her back door before he pushed his way inside, telling her he needed to use the bathroom. But he opened a laptop he was carrying and showed her lewd images on the computer instead, East said.

He also exposed himself to her and masturbated, according to a police report. He grabbed her hip and her phone, the report said, and then wrapped her in a bear hug from behind while he was still exposed.

When the woman yelled for help, he left her apartment and drove off in a gray Honda four-door sedan, East said.
