PORT ORCHARD, Wash. — A 30-year-old man is being sought for allegedly forcing his way into a woman’s home in Kitsap County Friday, assaulting her, attempting to rape her and then stealing her laptop, bank card and cell phone.

The sheriff’s office said Jevne forced his way into the unincorporated Kitsap County home of a young mother and her two children early Friday morning.
