Police are asking for the public’s help in locating a 31-year-old man who violated a court order when he entered a Jackson Heights home to assault his 18-year-old stepson and a 5-year-old boy.

According to police, Alix Sanchez entered an apartment at 94th Street and 37th Avenue on Nov. 30 at approximately 8 p.m., even though he had an order of protection against him.
