Claremont police released a composite sketch to ask for the public's help finding a sexual predator who broke into a home and assaulted a 12-year-old girl.

Authorities believe the suspect entered the home between 10:30 p.m. and 11:45 p.m. on March 20. It was at a neighborhood near Indian Hill and Arrow Highway. The victim was home alone at the time and woke up to the suspect coming into the home.

Police say there was no evidence of forced entry. Police were able to collect fingerprints and DNA evidence from the scene.

"We had several leads that we are following up on, but we're now going out to the community looking to identify this suspect," said Lt. Mike Cizek with the Claremont Police Department.

Those leads include tips from surrounding law enforcement agencies that say they have suspects matching the description.

The suspect was described as a clean-shaven white man, 30 years of age, approximately 5 feet 8 inches to 5 feet 9 inches tall, medium build, blue eyes and brown hair. He was last seen wearing a dark colored baseball type hat and a flannel type shirt, possibly black and red in color.

Anyone with information is urged to call the Claremont Police Department at (909) 399-5420.
