From Decatur Police…
We have had a male resident of the neighborhood come forward and advise he was walking and turned around on Erie Avenue near Clairemont Avenue on 2-21-14 at approximately 2:00 pm and believes he was the subject of the complaint. The male resident further stated he remembered seeing a young lady a short distance in front of him who seemed somewhat nervous as he made his turn. He was going to cross the street and walk on the other side because the young lady seemed apprehensive but she left the area before he had a chance. He did not think anything else of it until he later read the alert.
Investigators have followed up with the both the male resident who has come forward and the original complainant and based on the location, time frame, physical and clothing descriptions and details provided, believe this is the male the complainant encountered.
We want to thank the complainant for being alert and the resident for coming forward to clear up the misunderstanding.
This does NOT mean the suspect in the Emory University and DeKalb County assaults has been apprehended. We will continue to share any potentially useful information with the Emory University Police Department and DeKalb County Police Department to assist them with their investigations.
