    Police say a man claiming to a cable TV technician sexually assaulted a woman inside her Union City home.

    The man told the woman he worked for Comcast and that he was there for a service call. She told him there was no service call scheduled. She tried to shut the door, but the man forced his way in, authorities said.

    Union City police are seeking the public’s help identifying the suspect in the Aug. 24 attack. He is described as approximately 30 years old, standing between 5’9” and 6’0”, and weighing about 180 pounds. Police said the suspect had a muscular build, short black hair and was last seen wearing a red Comcast shirt with brown pants.

    Police released a composite sketch of the suspect on Wednesday. Anyone who can identify the suspect or provide more information is encouraged to call the Union City Police Department.

    A spokesperson for the cable company tells police its technicians do occasionally make unannounced house calls.

    Comcast is the parent company of NBCUniversal, which owns this TV station.
