RICHMOND (KRON) — Police hope two photos can help them find a man wanted for grabbing a 15-year old girl’s arm and trying to drag her into his car.

The victim says she was walking on on S. 39th Street and Florida Avenue on August 22nd when the man grabbed onto her arm. She says he tried to pull her into his parked vehicle. She managed to wrench her arm free and run away.

Three days later the victim and her family were on 23rd Street in Richmond when she saw the man who had tried to grab her on a sidewalk. One of her family members snapped two photos of the man. The victim’s father chased the man but the suspected groper got away after hurtling several fences.

Police say the target of the search is about 5’9″ with a thin build and bald head.
