Police in Decatur are looking for a man who allegedly grabbed a woman and tried to kidnap her last month, telling her to “come with me.”

The incident happened about 8:50 p.m. on Dec. 10 in the 100 block of Sams Street in east Decatur, police said in a statement Wednesday. The woman was standing on the sidewalk waiting for a ride-hailing service when she saw a man standing under the trees across the street.

He walked toward her, as if he was going to pass her, but he grabbed her left wrist and said “Come with me. Come with me,” police said.

The woman yelled “No,” and jerked away from the man, running to a nearby building. She was not injured. Police did not release the age of the woman.

The man walked toward East College Avenue, and was described as being in his late 40s to 50s. He is about 5 feet, 8 or 9 inches tall, with a medium build and a “noticeable belly,” police said. He has gray or white hair that was thinning on top, wearing eyeglasses, light blue jeans and a dark short-sleeved T-shirt.

Police released a sketch of the man Wednesday. Anyone with information about his identity is asked to contact Investigator Tiffany Edwards at tiffany.edwards@decaturga.com or 678-553-6664, or contact Crime Stoppers Greater Atlanta at 404 577-8477 to remain anonymous.
