Newnan Police are on the lookout for a man suspected of attempting to burglarize two homes early Monday.

Around 3:20 a.m., authorities with the Newnan Police Department responded to the area of Williams Pride Way after reports of attempted burglaries at two residences, according to Sgt. Chad Wood with the police department. A male suspect attempted to enter the two homes through a window, cutting a window’s screen on one home and opening the window of the other. Authorities could not confirm if the suspect entered either home.

The suspect was identified as a white male between the ages of 20 and 30, weighing approximately 150 to 170 pounds, according to Wood. He was described with a pronounced nose, thick wavy brown hair and thick brown eyebrows, and was wearing a dark hooded sweatshirt, dark pants and white tennis shoes with blue details.

A composite drawing of the suspect was provided by the Georgia Bureau of Investigation. According to Wood, anyone who recognizes this suspect or sees any suspicious person in the area is asked to contact the Newnan Police Department at 770-254-2355 — Sgt. Wood’s extension is 116. If there is an emergency situation, do not hesitate to call 911, he added.
