Police seek suspect in SW Atlanta sexual assault

Posted: Updated:
ATLANTA -

Atlanta police want to find the man responsible for a sexual assault in southwest Atlanta last month. Authorities released a sketch of the suspect on Friday.

The assault happened on Campbellton Road.

"He physically forced her, pinned her to a wall and tried to remove her clothing, and she struggled and was able to push him away and scream. And at that point, a neighbor heard her screaming and he got scared and ran off," said Lt. Janet Brady of the Atlanta Police Department.

Investigators say he's about 32 years old but appears younger.

The man is 5-foot-10 to 6-feet-tall, an average build, has long dreadlocks and tattoos on his forearm and neck. He's known as a neighborhood tattoo artist.

Anyone with information about the assault is urged to contact police at 404-577-TIPS (8477). A reward of up to $2,000 is available.
