ALBANY, Ore. – Police are looking for a man who broke into an Albany home early Monday morning and sexually assaulted two children.

Just after 4 a.m., according to officials, a stepmother returned to her home on SE Jackson Street and found the front door open. Inside, she found the other parent asleep and heard noises coming from the children's bedroom.

When she checked on them, she found a man sexually assaulting them. The invader reportedly pushed past the woman and ran from the home.

Police said the suspect has been described as white, about 5 feet 7 inches tall and having short blonde hair. He is reportedly in his late 20s to 30s and was wearing a blue shirt and black sweatpants.

The woman told police she didn’t recognize the man and police were unable to locate him.

Police said the victims were taken to Samaritan Albany General Hospital and then to ABC House, a child advocacy center.
