Dunwoody police are asking for help to identify a woman who allegedly tried to get a child into a car.

A sketch of the woman was released Wednesday. She is described as being in her mid-30s to early 40s with pink hair, blue eyes and a nose ring, according to police.

A child told police the woman approached him Thursday about 5:45 p.m. as he was riding his bike on Waterford Drive. She was driving a red Toyota sedan, Dunwoody police spokesman Sgt. Robert Parsons said in a news release.

“The child reported the female asked him to get into her car,” he said. “The child rode away on his bicycle, but stated the vehicle then followed him home before turning around and leaving the neighborhood.”

The incident was reported to police as a “suspicious person.”

Anyone with information identifying the woman is asked to contact Detective Robert Ehlbeck at 678-382-6925 or email at Robert.Ehlbeck@dunwoodyga.gov. Tips can also be submitted anonymously at the Dunwoody Police Department's website or via the TipSoft program at crimereports.com.
