Fairfield police are looking for a man who assaulted and tried to abduct a girl who was selling magazine subscriptions door-to-door in a mobile home community on Walters Road Tuesday evening.

The suspect attacked the 14-year-old girl from behind and shoved her to the ground around 6:30 p.m., Lt. Greg Hurlbut said.

He then dragged the teen along the ground toward his car but the girl broke free, ran to a nearby home and called 911, Hurlbut said.

Police searched the area but did not find the suspect.

The assailant is a Latino man in his mid-20s, 6 feet tall with a medium build. He has short dark hair, bushy eyebrows, a goatee and tattoos on his arms, Hurlbut said.

The man was wearing a black hooded sweatshirt, blue jeans and boots, police said.

His vehicle is a 1990s green Honda four-door sedan with new tires, police said.
