Authorities release suspect sketch in attempted abduction case in the Woodlands

Authorities have released a sketch of the man who tried to snatch a girl from the driveway of her own home in the Woodlands.

The attempted abduction happened May 19 on Black Cherry Court. A man drove up and asked her for directions to the nearest gas station. When the girl told him, the man claimed he wanted to give her a gift as a thank you.

The man then got out of his car and motioned for the girl to come to the back of his vehicle to get the present. A woman was sitting in the front passenger seat of the vehicle at the time.

The girl told authorities she politely said no and started to walk away when she felt a hand on her shoulder. The man told her to come with him, but she broke free and ran into the house. The girl told her mother what had happened, and her mom called officials.

Deputies arrived to search the area, but were unable to locate the suspect.

The suspect is described as skinny and bald white male who's about 30 years old. He was wearing a light blue collared shirt with white buttons and khaki shorts. The suspect was reportedly driving a black Honda or Acura Sports Utility or Crossover vehicle. The vehicle has tinted windows and possibly a green "One Hundred Club" sticker on the back window.

The female passenger was described as white with a heavy build and brown medium length hair. She was wearing sunglasses.

The Montgomery County Sheriff's Office is asking anyone with information in reference to the call or witnessing similar suspicious activity to contact the Montgomery County Sheriff's Office Communications Division at (936)-760-5800.
