Los Angeles police released video footage today of a suspect who found his way into an apartment in Reseda through an open window, stole property and may have sexually assaulted a 6-year-old girl.

The burglary occurred Monday after 11 p.m. at the apartment in the 6300 block of Reseda Boulevard, said Detective Ninette Toosbuy of the West Valley Community Police Station.

The mother and father were at home with their daughter, who woke up to find her panties had been cut and ripped, Toosbuy said.

The suspect was described as an Hispanic man in his early 20s, 5 feet 5 inches tall and 160 to 170 pounds, with short-cropped thick hair.
