Authorities investigate attempted sexual battery

Investigators with the Orange County Sheriff's Office are wanting to question a man in reference to an attempted sexual battery on Wednesday at an apartment complex in Orlando. They are asking for the public's help in locating him. 
"Oh, I hope they catch him,” said Rose Lehman, who lives at the Advenir at Polos East apartments, not far from State Road 50 and N. Alafaya Trail. 
Lehman said she became concerned, when she heard a woman screaming from a building at the complex. 
“I wanted to make sure that girl was safe," she said.  "I yelled out, 'Are you okay?'" Lehman explained. "I heard like a muzzled sound from the girl. Then, I called out again, 'Are you okay?' really loud, then the guy went running out.”
Cailyn Neff, who also lives in the complex, said, "It’s sick. It’s not okay. It’s disgusting.”
FOX 35 showed the sketch to other women in the apartment complex.  "A little creepy," said Lorieann Sanchez, who also lives in the complex. "This is the first time that I’m hearing it from you, actually.”
Residents said they would be more aware of their surroundings and not take any chances.  
Anyone who may have information in this case is asked to call Crimeline at 800-423-TIPS (8477).
