ONTARIO, Ore. -- Police in Ontario, Oregon are asking for help to figure out who attacked a woman and tried to sexually assault her.

Police were called to an apartment on Alameda Drive at around 2:45 a.m. Monday.

A 70-year-old woman who lives there told investigators that she was awoken by a man who was on top of her.

Police say she was able to talk the man out of sexually assaulting her, but she did suffer some minor injuries.
