Attempted abduction on Tucson's east side

Posted: Updated:

TUCSON, Ariz. -- The search is on for a man who allegedly tried to kidnap a woman jogging on the city's east side this weekend.

The Pima County Sheriff's Department says a woman in her 20s was out running Saturday afternoon near Old Spanish Trail and South Melpomene Way when the armed man approached her.

She ran away and was helped by a good Samaritan.

But the man got away in a four drive truck, with dirt on the rear bumper.

He's described as white, in his early 20s and was last seen wearing a black t-shirt and olive pants.

Anyone with information is asked to call 911 or 88-CRIME.
