The Yellowstone County Sheriff's Office has released a sketch of the man involved in a Wednesday home invasion that spurred a modified lockdown of Lockwood School.

The sketch shows a man with short hair, a short beard and oval eyeglasses.

In the incident, a resident of a house on the 100 block of Hemlock Drive reported that the unidentified man entered the home at about 5:30 a.m., according to the sheriff's office.

The man ran away when a resident approached him and nobody was injured in the incident.

After authorities notified Lockwood officials of the incident, they put the school in a modified lockdown that kept students from moving between buildings. The lockdown was put into place as a precautionary measure.

The man who entered the home is described as a man in his 20s or 30s, with short brown hair and a full beard and mustache.

Anyone with information about the identity of the man is asked to contact the Yellowstone County Sheriff's Office at 256-2929.
