Decatur, GA — Decatur Police are looking for a man accused of sexually assaulting a woman in Oakhurst.

The assault took place on Friday, Nov. 20 on Oakview Road near Fifth Avenue Upper Elementary. Police responded to the call around 8:18 p.m.

“An adult female was retrieving items from her vehicle which was parked on the street at the location,” Sgt. John Bender said. “She felt an unknown person brush into her from behind. The person then reached around her grabbing her genitals. The female confronted the person and he fled the area.”
