The Oakland County Sheriff's Office is on the lookout for a sexual predator, who they say attacked a woman Friday morning inside her Pontiac home.

It happened around 6 a.m. on Starlight Lane. The 43-year woman told deputies the suspect forced his way in through a locked screen door, demanding money. 

Once he realized she had no money, the suspect then sexually assaulted her. Deputies say the man grabbed a kitchen knife and forced her to stay inside a bedroom until he ran away.

Investigators are working on a sketch. He's described as a light skinned black man, in his 20's, skinny, with a red shirt and gray hoodie.
