A 22-year-old Topeka woman staying at Jayhawk Motel, 1004 N. Third St., reported a stranger knocked on her door, burst into her room when she opened the door and grabbed her.
Sgt. Trent McKinley, a Lawrence police spokesman, said officers were called at 1:43 a.m. The intruder released the woman after she screamed, and he walked away. McKinley described the suspect as an unshaven white man in his early 20s, 5-foot-7, about 225 pounds.
McKinley said the woman was not injured. Police were still looking for the suspect.
