GEORGETOWN, Texas (KXAN) — The sketch of a man who attacked a Georgetown girl last month has been released by police.

At around 4:41 p.m. on Oct. 3, Georgetown police officers were dispatched to a home on Rocky Hollow Drive.

Police were called by the girl’s father, who said his daughter was grabbed by an unknown man. The girl said she was walking from her bus stop when the man grabbed her right arm from behind and twisted it behind her back. He then wrapped his left leg around her legs in an attempt to knock her down, Georgetown police say.

The girl fought back and was able to free herself from the attacker on Primrose Trail, who then ran down Lakeway Drive toward Williams Drive. The only words the girl heard the suspect say were, “If you talk to anyone about this, I’ll come get you,” according to Georgetown police.

Tuesday, the department released a composite sketch of the suspect as described by the victim. He is described as a man of slim build in his 20s, around 5-foot-5 inches tall with dark hair and a mustache. He was last seen wearing a black polo type shirt and black jeans. The suspect possibly has a tattoo on his left forearm. He was not seen leaving in a vehicle.

If you have any information on the suspect please call Det. Ruben Vasquez at 512-930-6114 or ruben.vasquez@georgetown.org.

Last month, Georgetown ISD said they were working with police to provide increased security in the area. The district encourages parents to talk to their kids about stranger danger and asks students who walk or ride a bus home to walk in a group whenever possible. In September, there was an attempted kidnapping of a child walking to school in Round Rock. The student wasn’t hurt.
