Tampa, Florida -- Tampa Police are searching for a man who sexually assaulted a 70-year-old woman at a local church.

Police say around 11:45 Friday morning, the woman was at the Living Word Fellowship getting a key to a rental home nearby. As she was walking to the rental house, the man approached her and started asking her questions about the church.

When he asked to see the sanctuary, she unlocked the door and let him inside the building. After a short period of time, the man put his hand over her mouth, pushed her down onto a chair and sexually battered her. He then fled from the church on foot.

He is described as a black male, 28-30 years old, 5'6" to 5'11", 160-175 pounds with a thin build and short hair. He was last seen wearing a green or gray T-shirt and blue jeans.

Detectives are asking anyone with information to contact the Tampa Police Department.
