Police say they are now looking for two suspects in connection with a string of break-ins in the south Etobicoke neighbourhood of west Toronto.

Early Tuesday morning police responded to six different reports of break-ins in an area bordered by Bloor Street West, Islington Avenue, The Queensway and the Humber River.

In the early hours of Wednesday morning, somebody tried to break into a home just a few doors down from another residence that had been broken into the night before.

Police say that some of the break-ins involved theft. At least one woman was sexually assaulted after the intruder broke into her home.

The male suspect is said to be six feet tall with a slim build.

On Thursday police continued to canvass the neighbourhood and say anyone with information about the case should call a dedicated tip line: 416.808.2280.

Police have also posted this YouTube video offering ways residents can make their homes more break-in proof.
