TUCSON - Tucson Police are trying to identify a man they believe tried to kidnap a woman walking near the University of Arizona campus last weekend.
The alleged incident happened Sunday, February 17 at about 9:15 in the morning. The female victim was walking in the area of North 3rd Avenue and East University Boulevard when an unknown male suspect approached her in a vehicle and asked for directions. The victim said he then offered her money to personally guide him.
The victim refused to go with the suspect and he drove away, but returned shortly after on foot. That is when the victim says the man said something, then picked her up and carried her to a nearby alley. When she began to scream, he dropped her and ran away. She was not injured.
The suspect is described as a Caucasian male, 30-40 years of age, approximately 5'08" tall, with a medium
build, graying black hair, blue eyes, and an unkempt beard. He was last seen wearing a black leather jacket with brown stripes on the sleeves and faded blue jeans.
The vehicle he was initially seen driving was a white
1990's model SUV.
If you recognize this man or have any information, please call 911 or 88-Crime.
