Authorities in Duluth have issued an arrest warrant for an 18-year-old man following a violent home invasion this week.

Christian Coleman is facing charges of burglary, kidnapping, and criminal sexual conduct, according to St. Louis County's warrant list. 

He and two others are accused of breaking into a home in the Lincoln Park neighborhood early Wednesday morning and physically assaulting the residents in a search for drugs and money, CBS 3 says.  

According to the station, the complaint says Coleman and another suspect sexually assaulted a juvenile during the robbery. 

One of the victims recognized Coleman, the Duluth News Tribune says, and "told police the suspects thought she dealt drugs," though she said she doesn't.

The paper adds that while multiple victims were physically attacked and subsequently hospitalized, none received life-threatening injuries. 

No details have been released on the other two suspects in the robbery, though the investigation is still ongoing. 

Anyone with information about the incident or Coleman's whereabouts is asked to contact the Duluth Police Department’s Violent Crimes Unit at 218-730-5050.
