Woman attacked by man trying to abduct her

February 20, 1996

State police are seeking information about an attempted abduction about 10 p.m. Friday at the Little George's convenience store in Winfield.

A 27-year-old woman was using the pay phone in the parking lot near Route 26 at Woodbine Road when she was approached by a man, police said.

The man punched the woman and began dragging her toward his vehicle, a four-door, white sedan with blue interior, police said. The woman grabbed a pole and began screaming, after which the man ran off, they said.

The attacker was described as white, in his 20s, about 5 feet 8 inches tall, weighing about 160 pounds, with a medium build, black hair and a mustache. He was wearing a blue denim jacket with a lamb's-wool collar, blue jeans, and white low-top sneakers.

Anyone with information should call Tfc. James Hockett or Cpl. J. Scott McCauley, 876-2101.
