Authorities are looking for a man who forced his way into an East County home at gunpoint and demanded money, before fleeing Wednesday night.
A Manatee County Sheriff's Office report states a black male, described as being in his mid-20s, weighing between 150 and 165 pounds and last seen wearing a green T-shirt and blue jeans, forced his way into a home in the 4300 block of Fairfax Drive around 9:10 p.m. Dec. 12.
The report states the suspect rang the door bell to the residence. The victim answered the door, but did not see anyone. The suspect forced his way into the home at that time, demanding money and other items.
The victim complied with the demands and was forced into her bedroom closet while the suspect fled.
