Officials say the man drove up to the female victim around 8 p.m. Friday in the 31000 block of Railroad Canyon Road and tried to coax her into his car. When she did not comply, investigators say the suspect then approached the victim, grabbed her arm and tried to pull her into his vehicle.
She fought back, broke free and fled the scene. She then alerted authorities.
The suspect was described as a white male in his mid-20s, about 6 feet 2 inches tall, weighing between 180-190 pounds with brown hair and unknown color eyes. The suspect was seen wearing a plain black T-shirt and blue jeans and was driving a four-door black car of unknown make or model, possibly resembling a Toyota.
