A man is being held without bond in the Cobb County jail after authorities say he tried to rape a 12-year-old girl in Shaw Park.

According to a warrant filed by Cobb police, the victim said a man approached her while she was walking through the woods in the north Marietta park around 5 p.m. She said he offered her a water bottle that appeared to be sealed.

The warrant says that “after drinking from the bottle she began to feel dizzy and tingle.” Then the man pulled out a knife, threatened her, and sexually assaulted her, according to the warrant.

Cobb police arrested Douglas Darch on Jan. 22 and connected him to the alleged attack.
