PRATTVILLE, Ala. (AP) — Authorities say a nude man forced his way into an Alabama home and tried to sexually assault a woman.
Prattville Police Chief Mark Thompson tells The Montgomery Advertiser that 47-year-old Eric Lamont Barnes was charged with attempted sexual assault and burglary Monday.
Thompson says residents of the home told police that Barnes tried to sexually assault a woman living there. Authorities say Barnes fled after a physical encounter with the victim and witnesses inside the home.
The newspaper reports that Barnes couldn't be reached for comment and that courthouse records show he doesn't have an attorney.
