State police are looking for a 51-year-old Indiana County man who burglarized and struck a 48-year-old woman at her residence in Rayne Township Saturday.

Police obtained an arrest warrant for Tracy P. Kirkpatrick, 51, of Indiana Borough in connection with the burglary and assault at about 5:23 p.m. Saturday at the home along Skyline Drive.

Police allege Kirkpatrick came to the home uninvited, forced open the front door, grabbed the resident's throat, grabbed her throat and threatened to punch her.

Police said he damaged the woman's sport utility vehicle as he left and then fled in a brown, Jeep Cherokee.

Police obtained an arrest warrant from Homer City District Judge Susanne Steffee charging Kirkpatrick with burglary, criminal mischief, simple assault, criminal trespass and harassment.

Kirkpatrick, who is 6 feet 1 inch, has gray hair and blue eyes and weighs 195 pounds, police said.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Indiana barracks at 724-357-1960.
