ELYRIA -- Police are looking for a man who grabbed and attempted to abduct a woman as she walked in Elyria.

The woman told police she was walking just before midnight on East River Street on August 22 when she noticed a man in a Dodge pickup truck sitting in the hospital parking lot with the engine running.

The victim says the man jumped out of the truck and ran across the street to grab her. The woman says she was physically picked up by the suspect who attempted to take her back to his truck.

The victim kicked and screamed and drew the attention of a passing driver who slowed down. That's when, the victim says, the abductor let go of her, ran back to his truck and took off.

The woman says she did not know her attacker. Police are searching for the suspect.
