A man sexually assaulted a 7-year-old girl outside her home over the weekend, police told ABC7, and Covina police are still searching for the man. At about 6:45 p.m. Saturday, the suspect walked up to the victim and covered her mouth with his hand before carrying her to the side of the house, the L.A. Times reports. He proceeded to assault the girl until she was able to bite his hand and break free. The girl was being chased to the front of the house when an adult neighbor saw the incident and screamed. He escaped in a 2005 or newer burgundy Nissan Altima with paper plates that said "Wondries" in black and neon green letters.
