Police in Clarksville have asked for the public's help in identifying and finding the man who tried to take a toddler from their yard.

It happened Thursday afternoon around 3:45 at Tracy Lane and Pea Ridge Road.

The mom of a 3-year-old told officers that a Hispanic male or a dark-skinned white male jumped her fence and ran towards her child. She then made her presence known and chased him away.

He drove away in a four-door blue older model car, possibly a Chevrolet Caprice, with rust on the bottom of it. He was wearing a black ball cap, a white sweatshirt, and blue jeans.

Anyone with information on this man was asked to call the CrimeStoppers TIPS Hotline at 931-645-8477.
