Detective Constable Sarah Northcott of Bodmin CID said: " Previously the lady had left home and had seen the male on the land outside her house smoking a cigarette. She returned home quite quickly as she felt he was suspicious and found him trying to get in.
"We would like to hear from anyone who has information about this man. Perhaps they know of someone who came home with a head wound or unexplained shoulder injury,'' she said.
They should contact Bodmin CID on 101, quoting crime reference BW/12/842.
