St. Louis man wanted for sexually assaulting Columbia woman

Brian Burns, Jr., has an extensive criminal history. This incident happened on October 15, when Burns kicked in the front door of the home at about 1:30 a.m. The woman escaped the residence and contacted authorities when Burns fell asleep. When deputies arrived, he had left.

Burns is charged with sexual assault, felonious restraint and first degree burglary. He has friends and associates in Columbia, so he may still be in the area.
