Atlanta police officials released a sketch of the man believed to have attempted to kidnap a 12-year-old Lake Claire girl as she walked home from school.
The March 12 incident occurred around 4:10 p.m. near the intersection of Connecticut and New York avenues.
The victim told investigators the man, driving a silver SUV, pulled up alongside her and offered a ride.
She declined and began walking away but the man put the vehicle in reverse and tried to follow her.
He gave up when other motorists approached the intersection.
Anyone with information is urged to call Crime Stoppers Atlanta at 404.577.TIPS (8477).
