A woman told police she was walking her dog at the Landera Apartments in the 3900 block of Accent Drive at about 8:45 p.m. when a man attempted to grab her.

About 15 minutes later, the same man followed another woman to her apartment and knocked on her front door. When the woman opened the door, the man pushed his way into the apartment and grabbed her, police said. A man inside the apartment heard what was going on and pushed the attacker out of the door, according to police.

The man, aged between 25 and 35 years old, got away before police arrived.

He was described as a black man, approximately 5'9" tall and weighing 200 to 250 pounds. He was last seen wearing a light blue collared shirt with short sleeves similar to a mechanic uniform. He was also wearing a skullcap, or "do rag" with possibly a camouflage design, police said.

Police asked residents to be on alert for someone matching the man's description.

Anyone with information about the incident should call Dallas police at 911 or 214-671-3693. Crime Stoppers will pay up to $5,000 for information leading to an arrest and indictment. Tips can be made to 214-373-8477.
