ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Rosario Pelico is in the Dougherty County jail after authorities say he tried to snatch a 14 year old girl off her bicycle Saturday night.

The incident happened on Sanborn Avenue, and officers arrested him at his Helen Street house a short time later.

Pelico is charged with simple battery, obstruction, and giving police a false name.

"Entered the residence. Found him in a back bedroom.  According to the report he put up quite a fight.  They arrested him and transported him to the Dougherty County jail," said Sgt. Ted Wertz of the Dougherty Co. Police Dept.

Investigators say they are not sure what Pelico's intentions were when he grabbed the teen.      

 Pelico is being held in the Dougherty County Jail, on $2,500 bond.
