Police in Murfreesboro are looking for a man who tried to kidnap a 14-year-old girl last month.
According to a release, the suspect, Eswin Noe Arevalo Alvarado, allegedly grabbed the teen's arm and tried to pull her toward his nearby apartment as she walked to a friend's house on Bradyville Pike on July 24.
A family friend witnessed the incident and yelled for Alvarado to stop. He fled on foot before officers arrived.
“He seen that she was snatched and he jumped over some fences to rescue her and the subject had took off running,” mother Kim Coleman said.
Coleman said her daughter is having a difficult time since the terrifying incident occurred.
“She's having a tough time leaving; she's always watching and peeping. She's just nervous. It's nerve wracking to her.”
She continued, “It's very sickening. I would never think in a million years that something like this would take place.”
According to Coleman, she has seen Alvarado, who lives just two doors away from her and her family, a few times since the alleged incident.
“Every other night he pops through here in a different car,” she said. “[It's] just sick.”
Coleman said with school starting next week, she just wants the man who allegedly terrorized her daughter off the street.
“What he did was bad and he needs to pay for that,” she said.
Alvarado, 25, is approximately five feet, four inches tall with a stocky build. He has short black hair with Mohawk, multiple tattoos and an earring in his left ear.
He drives a gray, two-door Toyota Celica.
