    A realtor was sexually assaulted while previewing a home in Suitland, Md., Wednesday evening, according to Prince George’s County police.

    The woman was assaulted about 7:30 p.m. in the 2300 block of Dupont Avenue, police said.  A man grabbed the victim when she entered the basement of the home and began to sexually assault her, said police. The victim fought off the attacker and he fled the scene.

    It's unknown who the man is or how he got in to the house. Neighbors said the former residents moved out in recent weeks.

    Police describe the man as black, 25-35 years old, standing about 6-foot-1 with a short haircut and slim build. He was described as wearing a black or blue T-shirt and dark-colored tennis shoes.
