WINTER PARK, Fla. - Orange County deputies are searching for the man they say forced his way into a woman's apartment and attacked her, possibly using a box cutter.

Deputies said the sexual battery was reported at the Affinity at Winter Park apartment complex on Friday just after 11 a.m. The woman was taken to the hospital after the attack.

Initial reports say a box cutter was involved in the attack. Deputies are still searching for the man, who they describe as a 30 to 40 year-old, 150 to 160 pounds and 5 feet 6 inches tall. A composite sketch is expected to be released on Friday.

"This is a dangerous individual that we need to get off the streets," said Angelo Nieves of OCSO.

Deputies said a senior living center located behind the complex was put on lockdown for a short period of time as the search continued.
