    Details:

    On December 22, 2010 at approximately 6:39 p.m. the victim was leaving the Beall’s store and walking to her vehicle in the parking lot. As she is walking, the suspect walked up behind her and put something to her back. He then told her "Don't scream and you won't get hurt". The victim thought it was a joke and she might know the person so she immediately turned around and realized that she didn't recognize the suspect. The victim screamed and the suspect then attempted to grab her arm. She continued to scream and swing her arms at which point the suspect fled from the scene. The suspect was last seen walking near the Walgreens going toward Dale Mabry and Northdale. The victim was not injured.

    The surveillance photo of the suspect is from the Beall’s store.
