A woman has been sexually assaulted by an intruder as she lay asleep in a property in Oxford.
The woman woke at about 04:30 BST on Wednesday at the property in James Street to find a man in the room with her, Thames Valley Police said.
Following the attack she shouted out, causing him to flee the building by climbing through a window.
He is described as black, about 5ft 8ins tall, of lean build with short, dark hair.
Police said he was wearing dark trousers and a grey plaid lumberjack-style shirt.
Any witnesses are urged to come forward.
