Police issued a sketch of a man wanted for an attack and attempted abduction of a teenage girl in Coon Rapids on Friday morning.
According to Bring Me The News, the girl was skateboarding on a walking path near Coon Rapids Blvd and Coon Rapids Blvd Extension when she sensed someone was behind her. Sure enough, the man "grabbed her, pulled her into the woods and sprayed her with pepper spray and tried to attack her."
The victim kicked and screamed, and she was able to fight him off. The man then ran into the woods.
Police responded quickly but were not able to locate the suspect, so they need the public's help identifying and finding him.
He's described as a white male in his mid-30s, wearing a black Adidas sweatshirt with grey sleeves, dark sweat pants, black hair, lower profile beard, and a thin build.
If you have information regarding this case, you need to call Anoka County Dispatch at 763-427-1212.
