DeKalb County Police are investigating the abduction and sexual assault of a 5-year-old female.  On July 22, at approximately 4:30 p.m., officers responded to a report of a child wandering alone at the Value Mall at 5616 Memorial Drive in Stone Mountain.  The child reported that she had been picked up by an unknown male at the Clifton Glen Apartments and later dropped off on Memorial Drive.  The child was transported to the hospital for evaluation where it was discovered she had been sexually assaulted.

While officers were out with the child, a call was received of a kidnapping at the Clifton Glen Apartments located at 600 Hambrick Road in Stone Mountain.  The victim’s 8-year-old brother reported the kidnapping to his mother who contacted police.  Officers and detectives canvassed the area and developed a suspect description.

The suspect is described as a light skinned black male in his early twenties with long hair tied into a ponytail and a long beard. The suspect is believed to be operating an early 2000’s model Hyundai hatchback gray in color.

Anyone who has any information on the suspect or this incident are urged to contact the DeKalb County Police Homicide/Assaults Unit at 770-724-7850.
