Decatur Police have released a sketch of an individual they believe tried to kidnap a woman waiting for a rideshare on Dec. 10.

According to Police, on Dec. 10 officers responded to the call in the 100 block of Sams Street at 8:50 p.m.

“The victim reported she was standing on the sidewalk waiting on a rideshare when she noticed a man standing under the trees across the street,” the Police Department said. “The man crossed the street and walked towards her as though he was going to pass her but he then grabbed her by the left wrist and stated, ‘Come with me. Come with me.’ The victim yelled, ‘No!’ and jerked away from the man and ran to a nearby building. The suspect turned and walked towards East College Avenue. The victim was not injured.”

The victim provided the following description of the suspect:

White male, late 40’s-50’s, approximately 5’8”-5’9”, medium build with a noticeable belly, gray/white hair thinning on top, wearing eyeglasses, light wash blue jeans and a dark short-sleeved t-shirt and carrying a red bag of chips.
