Man wanted in sexual assault case

Posted: Updated:

Investigators with the Atlanta Police Special Victims Unit released a sketch of a man wanted in a sexual assault. 

Police said the suspect approached a 16-year-old and 17-year-old and told them that he was an undercover police officer before he sexually assaulted them.

The two girls went to the Brad Paisley concert at the Lakewood Amphitheater on Sept. 15. Police said the girls wanted to avoid the long lines for the bathroom after the concert. They went across the street and into the tree line behind the gas station.

"People go back by the side of the building here and they go in these bushes and woods and they urinate over here a lot," said Jennifer Golden, who works nearby.

The girls reported a man who claimed he was undercover officer asked what they were doing and told them to come with him. He then pushed them up against a nearby building as if to pat them down.

"He grabbed both of the girls' breasts their groin," said Officer John Chafee with the Atlanta Police Department. "And then he ordered both on their knees and to take off their clothes."

Police said the girls kept their clothes. They realized the guy was an imposter and ran. The two were able to quickly find an off-duty officer who was working outside of the concert.

"It is a bold crime, there were a lot of people in the area," said Chafee.

Anyone with information on this suspect is asked to contact Investigators at 404-546-4260 or Crime Stoppers at 404-577-8477.

Callers can remain anonymous and may be eligible for a reward of up to $2,000.
