COPS have released an image of a man they are hunting on suspicion of a serious assault in Lye.
Officers want to speak to Alan Davies, aged 20, in connection with a break-in and unprovoked attack on a woman on February 9.
Officers were called to the woman's home after a man, believed to be Mr Davies, got into the house through an open window and then launched an unprovoked attack on the 19-year-old.
The victim, who was known to the offender, suffered head and facial injuries, for which she received treatment.
Police now want to interview Mr Davies however officers have so far been unsuccessful with attempts to trace him.
Detective sergeant Craig Harris, from Dudley Public Protection Unit, urged people to come forward and help trace Davies.
Ds Harris, said: "We want to hear from anyone who knows where Alan is, as we need to speak to him as part of our investigation into this assault.
"The victim's injuries were fairly serious and we urge people to help us trace the suspect, where possible."
Anyone with information about Mr Davies' whereabouts is urged to contact Dudley PPU by dialling 101, or speak to Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
