MONT VERNON, N.H. (CBS) -Police are continuing their search for an armed man who broke into a Brook Road home Thursday afternoon and sexually assaulted a woman inside .
On Friday, Brook Road was shut down to traffic as police continued their search. Residents were reminded of the violent home invasion and murder of Kimberly Cates in 2009 in the same town.
“It’s very frightening because it’s very close to home,” neighbor Leeann Belbin said. “This person could’ve hurt my family and all I can imagine is what that family is going through and they are very nice people.”
The suspect is described as a white male about 5’10 wearing black clothes and a ski mask.
“Everybody is closing up shop and making sure everything is locked up and secure,” Belbin said.
