GIVE THE LADY A HAND
A woman called police after reportedly experiencing a violent assault and an attempted abduction on Aug. 11 at 10:30 p.m. Her vehicle ran out of gas, so she was at the 200 block of Leach walking when two men in a truck pulled up next to her and offered her a ride home. She declined, so the driver offered to look at her car for her. When she again declined again, the driver grabbed her by the shirt, threw her to the ground and started pulling her toward his vehicle. The passenger of the truck yelled, “Hurry up and get that bitch in the car.” She screamed and, when the suspect tried to cover her mouth, she bit his hand hard enough that she could taste blood. The suspect let go and fled to the truck. Investigations continue.
