Home intruder gropes young girl in Buckhead apartment


ATLANTA (WXIA) – Atlanta Police said they were looking for a home intruder who sexually assaulted a young girl at a Buckhead apartment Monday evening.

Investigators from the Atlanta Police Department’s Major Crimes Unit were summoned to a unit at the 32 Hundred Apartments in Buckhead after receiving reports of the sexual assault on Monday.

The girl said that when she was lying in bed, she felt someone climb into the bed with her, and begin to grope her. When she jumped out of the bed, she saw what she described as a small Hispanic male dressed in a black hoodie and dark jeans.

She said she ran into her parents’ room, while the suspect fled to the living room of the apartment, and out the patio door.
