An 11-year-old Glen Burnie girl told police a man she didn't know grabbed her by the arm Monday, and Anne Arundel County Police are investigating.
Around 3:22 p.m. the girl was walking home from the bus stop in the area of Heritage Crossing and Ellsworth Terrace in the Glen Burnie community of Tanyard Springs, according to a release posted to the police department's dedicated Facebook page .
The girl told police she ran ahead of a group of other kids so she could get home faster. After she did so, a man she didn't know grabbed her right arm from behind, according to the release.
The girl pulled out of his grip and ran home. The man left the area and the girl was not injured, according to police.
The girl told police the man did not say anything to her and did not chase her.
Officers and detectives searched the area with the help of a police dog and aviation, but did not identify a suspect.
An increased police presence is planned in the community and at area schools Tuesday, the release states.
The man who grabbed the girl is described as a white man in his 30's with dark hair and a "Ceasar" style hair cut. He was wearing blue jeans, a dark blue short-sleeved shirt and had a yin yang tattoo on his upper, left arm. He was between 6-feet, 2-inches and 6-feet, 4-inches tall.
Anyone with information about the incident is asked to call Anne Arundel's Northern District Detectives at 410-222-6135.
