Atlanta Police Department Seek Public's Help in Identifying Potential Serial Sexual Assault Suspect
The Atlanta Police Department is seeking the public’s help in identifying a suspect possibly responsible for a string of sexual assaults in the Buckhead/North Atlanta area.
The suspect’s most recent assault occurred early Saturday morning (April 28th, 2012).
A woman living in the Lindbergh Drive area returned home around 4 a.m. with her roommate. Shortly after going to sleep, she awoke to a man fondling her. The male also made sexually suggestive remarks to the victim.
The man is described as a black male, 5’-8” to 5’-10” tall, with a dark complexion and wearing a gray hooded sweat shirt with dark-colored pants. The man left the apartment, but stole some property prior to fleeing the scene.
The crime fits the pattern of several similar crimes committed in the Buckhead area since late 2009. In these cases, the suspect has made sexual contact with the victims, made sexually suggestive remarks and stolen property prior to exiting. Suspect descriptions have been similar. In all cases, there were no indications of forced entry.
