Police: DeKalb indecency suspect could be tied to assaults

Posted: Updated:
DEKALB COUNTY, Ga. -

DeKalb County police are searching for a suspect involved in an indecent act who could be connected with other crimes.

Officers released a composite sketch of a man they say committed a sexual act while talking to a woman waiting at a bus stop at Covington Highway and Mercer Drive on June 6.

"According to the victim, this individual approached her at the bus stop, attempted to engage her in conversation and when she turned to address him, that's when she noticed that he was committing a sexual act on himself," said DeKalb Polices spokesperson Mekka Parish.

They believe he could also be connected with two attempted sexual assaults at the Marquis Ridge Apartments on Covington Highway in DeKalb County last month. In those cases, the suspect is accused of exposing himself to women and a child after climbing in separate apartments.

The bus stop is located just across the street from the scene of the two previous attacks.

"It was a little more brazen in those particular incidents because he broke into those residences to perform this act," Parish said.

Authorities are also worried because of the aggressive nature of the attacks and say though no one was hurt, they're afraid the man could become violent.

Anyone with information is asked to call the DeKalb County Police Department at (770) 724-7710.

    From coffee shops in Brooklyn to restaurants in Manhattan, we find speakeasies standing out by blending in. When people in Bushwick want a green machine juice blend they visit Leticia Castillo's Owl Juice Pub. But first they must find the owl. "We been doing fine without a sign," Castillo says.

    Only 10 percent of people who get CPR from a bystander actually survive. But two young men in Westchester County have now patented a device that could dramatically increase those odds and save lives. John and Chris DiCapua's sitting room in their parents' Westchester County home has had a unique guest lying around for quite a while now: a CPR dummy. What began as an idea from their time as Boy Scouts is now a device that could potentially save lives.

Malcolm Smith. Halloran was also found guilty of taking payoffs from what he thought were developers who wanted him to funnel city money their way. The men were actually an FBI agent and an FBI informant.
