Georgia Bureau of Investigation sketch of attempted child abduction suspect

Cobb police looking for suspect in attempted child abduction

Cobb County police were still looking for a suspect Saturday in connection with an attempted child abduction earlier in the week.

Police said in a press release that a 10-year-old girl was walking home from her bus stop Tuesday when a man, described as between 20 and 30 years old with a gold front tooth, approached her in a blue pickup with an extended cab.

The man told her to get in the car but the girl refused. She ran home when the man became angry and yelled at her, police said.

The incident occurred in the area of Powder Springs and Pair roads in Marietta.

Police released Saturday a sketch of the suspect.

Anyone with information about the incident is asked to call 911 or 770-801-3470. Callers may remain anonymous and possibly receive a reward of up to $2,000 by contacting greater Atlanta Crime Stoppers at 404-577-TIPS (8477). They may also text CSA and the tip to CRIMES (274637).
