ATLANTA - Police say a man was arrested and charged after he allegedly tried to rape a woman in Atlanta early Friday.

The incident occurred after 1 a.m. as a woman returned to her apartment in the 800 block of Spring Street NW.

When the woman entered her apartment building, the suspect followed her into the building, according to a spokesperson with the Atlanta Police Department.
