Sketch Released After Attempted Abduction in Farmers Branch

Farmers Branch police released a sketch of a man Tuesday who tried to abduct a 12-year-old girl from an apartment complex laundry room Saturday.

Police said the preteen victim was checking on a load of clothes in the laundry when a man approached her and displayed a weapon, possibly a stun gun.

While fighting to escape the man, the girl suffered a minor injury. The details of the girl's injuries are not known.

The man was described as about 5 feet tall, Hispanic, between 40 and 50 years old with a medium build and a gray or white mustache. The man was wearing a blue baseball hat and blue short-sleeve shirt and jeans.

He fled toward Josey Lane in an older model silver midsize car with no tint on the windows, police said.
