A female living at the residence stated that she had just been assaulted and the suspect fled the area.

Deputies learned that the female victim stated she had been having problems with her outside screen door.  She heard the door making noise and went to pull it closed.  As she opened the door, a male subject wearing a black stocking mask and dark blue mid-length coat entered, shoving her to the floor.   During a scuffle with the suspect, a cell phone rang.  The suspect apparently became frightened and fled on foot.
