Jackson police are looking for the man who broke into a home Tuesday morning and attacked a woman inside.

The burglary and assault happened around 5:15 a.m. in the 800 block of Adkins Boulevard in Northeast Jackson.

Police say the intruder forced his way in the house and once inside, he used a flashlight to assault a 26-year-old woman while she was in bed.  

A neighbor says she called 911 for the victim, who was covered in blood.

"She did sustain facial and head injuries," says JPD Commander Tyree Jones. "I don't know what the exact injuries are, but from what I do understand she was bloody and did need medical attention."  

The victim's injuries are considered serious, but not life-threatening. 

At this point, police believe the attack was random. 

The attacker got away with the woman's keys.
