    Oceanside police are still searching for the man who molested an 11-year-old girl.

    A man who entered the bedroom of an 11-year-old Oceanside girl and molested her Thursday has yet to be apprehended, according to police.

    The prowler crept into a first floor apartment bedroom where three children were sleeping early Thursday morning.

    Police said the male suspect locked the bedroom door so family members could not help her when she began to scream. He then knelt over the girl touching her in a sexual manner.

    The man is described as thin and was wearing a white baseball cap, white T-shirt and a bandanna covering his face. He fled the house through an unlocked window.

    The incident happened on the 700 block of Carey Road, within a few miles of Jefferson Middle School.

    Police have no suspect leads and are still searching for the man.
