Toronto police are warning the public as they investigate a report of a man trying to enter a woman’s apartment while threatening her.

Toronto Police Service issued an alert Thursday morning about the incident reported Wednesday in the city’s west end.

The male suspect allegedly entered an apartment building and tried to open an apartment door.

When a woman started to open her door, police say the man tried to force his way inside and threatened to sexually assault her.

The woman shut the door and phoned 911, while the man ran away.

Police describe the suspect as in his 30s with a medium build and black moustache, wearing a navy blue toque, a black and white checkered scarf and a brown leather jacket.
