A Monterey woman managed to fight off a man who tried to sexually assault her in a home Wednesday night, police said.
The assailant entered a single-family home in the 1100 block of Prescott Avenue through an unlocked door shortly before 9 a.m. and tried to assault an adult female, police said.
The woman fended off the attack, and the man fled. The victim suffered minor injuries, police said.
The man may have left in a gray, 1980s' model Datsun 280Z or similar vehicle, police said.
