Police are seeking the public's help in identifying a man responsible for a home invasion on Fowler Street April 29.
A 50-year-old Enid woman called police at 4:29 p.m., shortly after the assault had taken place in the 1600 block of Fowler.
The woman told police she saw two packages on the edge of her porch and thought it was odd because usually the postman rings the bell when he leaves packages. She said she went out to get the packages and when she turned around to go back in she felt someone behind her. The woman said she turned, and that’s when someone pushed her into the house.
The woman and man got into a scuffle but the woman was able to retrieve her pistol. The man took the gun from the woman and struck her upon the head. The woman told officers she felt like she had passed out for a few seconds. When she regained consciousness, she was able to retrieve the gun and fired a shot at the suspect but missed. The man then fled from her home.
Nothing was taken during the altercation, and the woman said she had never seen the man before.
The man is described as a white male, about 6 feet, 2 inches tall, weighing about 180 pounds, with a skinny build, short hair and clean shaven. He was last seen wearing a light-colored gray shirt and long tan pants.
Anyone with information about the suspect can report an anonymous tip with Crime Stoppers at (580) 233-6233, www.enid.org/departments/police or text to 274637, typing “Enid” and a message in the text box.
Those submitting a tip could earn a reward up to $1,000 and will not be required to testify nor identified.
