GEORGETOWN, Texas (KWTX) - The Georgetown Police Department is asking the public for help identifying and locating a suspect in a “possible attempted child abduction.”

It happened in the 3100 block of Northwest Blvd. at about 11 a.m. on Sept. 18, police said.

The suspect knocked on the door of a residence and allegedly grabbed the 9-year-old girl who answered the door, police said.

He allegedly carried her away from the residence, released the child and then ran into the wooded area near the Lakeway Drive and Northwest Blvd, area, police said.

Investigators described the suspect as a “dark skin male” with a “large build.” He is believed to be about 5′10″ to 6″ tall and was wearing ballcap, long sleeve black shirt, and gray sweatpants.

The man has an “undescribed tattoo on one of his arms,” police said.

The child was returned safely to her family and the incident remains under investigation.
