(ATLANTA) — The Fulton County Sheriff’s Office is searching for a man accused of assaulting a female worker inside a bathroom at the Fulton County Courthouse.

Authorities confirm to Channel 2 Action News that the victim is a worker at the courthouse.

“Unfortunately, we had a young lady that was attacked in a courthouse restroom,” deputies said. “Fortunately, a witness walked in and interrupted the assault.”

Fulton County Sheriff Pat Labat said that the victim had minor injuries and was pretty shaken up.

The man is described as a Black male with medium complexion. He is approximately 5 feet, 5 inches tall with a muscular build and a short haircut.

He was last wearing light blue jean shorts and a black tank top.

The man was identified as he exited the courthouse.
