Posted at 4:50 PM, Sep 19, 2016

Elyria police are looking for a man wanted for attempting to break into a home with a young child inside. 

Around 1:55 a.m. Sunday, a woman noticed a man looking into her daughter's window. She told police it appeared as though the man was attempting to open the window. 

Upon seeing him at her house, she screamed and ran towards the man. The man ran away and got into a blue or green vehicle.

The mother, who didn't want to be identified, told the man was well dressed and had a "flat top or fade" haircut.

The mother confirmed all four of her daughters, ages 5 to 12, were in the bedroom at the time of the incident.

So far police are not connecting this case with another attempted abduction in that neighborhood several months ago.

The suspect is a white male in his mid-20s to early 30s and stands at 5'7" to 6'0" tall. He is 220 pounds and has light brown hair. At the time of the incident, he was wearing a blue t-shirt, dark jeans and dark shoes. 

Anyone with information is asked to contact the Elyria Police Department at 440-323-3302.
