Tampa, Florida-- Police need your help in locating a man who tackled a woman at a local laundromat, and attempted to sexually batter her very early Monday morning. 

According to reports, the incident happened around 2 a.m. at the Tampa Coin Laundry on North 40th street. A woman was there doing her laundry, and had just stepped outside to smoke a cigarette when she first saw the suspect. 

But it wasn't until she went back inside the laundromat that the man snuck up behind her, tackled her to the ground and tried to sexually assault her. Officials say she was able to fight him off, and that he ran away. 

They conducted an extensive search of the area Monday, but say he's still on the loose.

If you recognize the man in the surveillance footage above, or have any additional information on this crime, you're urged to call TPD at 813-231-6130. 

Officials say he is not wearing any pants in the video.
