Police release photos of two men wanted for questioning in sexual assault of elderly woman

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. - Colorado Springs police are trying to identify and question two men about a sexual assault that happened in February.

The images released by police are from a surveillance camera and show the men walking into a Walmart store on the night the crime happened. Police say the men came into the store together.

Police say that on Feb. 7 of this year, someone broke into a home on E. Boulder Street and sexually assaulted a 71-year-old woman.

The victim told police that she was watching TV at around 10:15 p.m. when she noticed someone looking through her bedroom window. The woman said she grabbed a gun to protect herself, but that the man was able to get it away from her before she could fire.

Police said the man who attacked the woman also stole her wallet, which had about $100.00 worth of cash inside.

The woman told police the man who attacked her was approximately 6-feet tall with a medium build. He had short, cropped hair with no facial hair. Police say the man was wearing a one piece tan jumpsuit style outfit -- possibly a Carhartt set of overalls. He was also wearing tan work boots.

One of the men pictured matches the description of the suspect in the crime, but police would like to talk to both men because they came into the store together.
