Wednesday brought quite a scare for a middle school student who had to fight off a man who tried to drag her into his car as she walked to school.

Georgetown Police are now investigating the attempted abduction along Old Lemons Mill at Hamilton Street.

13-year-old Katelynn King says the man came up and grabbed her as she crossed the street.

King says she fought back, kicking him and spraying him with pepper spray.

King says at that point, her attacker let go of her and took off in a tan or gold mid-90's Buick sedan with a busted out driver's side tail light.

King says she'd noticed the man on multiple occasions and thought he was following her as she walked to and from school. Her aunt bought her the pepper spray at that time.

Police have released a composite sketch of the man police are now looking for.

They say he is a white man, about six feet tall between the ages of 50 and 60, with a distinctive mole on his nose.

If you recognize this man you're asked to call Georgetown Police at 502-863-7820.
