Cobb Police Warn of Bicycle Chaser
Two females in a Powder Springs neighborhood attempted to ride away Tuesday, but he caught up with them and grabbed the adult's bike, requesting "a ride."
Two females—one adult, one juvenile—reported to police Tuesday that a man chased them while they rode their bicycles in a Powder Springs neighborhood.
Officers responded about 8 p.m. to the Legend Hollow subdivision on Old Lost Mountain Road, according to an alert sent out Wednesday from Cobb police Precinct 5.
The girls said a black male they didn't know—about 5-foot-6 with short hair, silver shorts and a white short-sleeve shirt—began to chase them, the alert said. They attempted to ride away, but he caught up with them and grabbed the adult's bike, requesting "a ride."
"The male repeated the request a second time but then left them alone at which time they returned home and contacted police," the alert said.
One of the females said she later saw a gold or bronze Chrysler Sebring on Legend Hollow Lane occupied by two males "who seemed to be watching her but then left the area."
"The area was checked by responding officers, but the individuals were not located," the alert said. "Please be aware of this activity and call 911 if you observe the vehicle in the area or see anything of a suspicious nature."
