Atlanta police are looking for a man they say tried to abduct two women.

One of the women escaped after he locked her in the trunk of his car.

She clawed her way through the lining of the trunk and struggled with a latch until she got it open.

She then jumped out of the car and ran to a nearby home for help.

Police say twenty minutes after the woman got away he targeted another woman.

But when he tried to force her into his car, an off-duty officer who lives nearby heard her screams.

He ran the man off but gave investigators a description.

Police developed this sketch of the man and they're on a 24-hour lookout for him.

They say there are plans for more undercover work at night.
