Nassau County police are searching for a man who attacked and robbed a woman in her bedroom early Saturday morning in Uniondale.

Police said a man entered a 19-year-old woman's bedroom shortly before 5 a.m. and made a sexual advance toward her. He then punched her in the mouth, causing a small cut on her lip.
