FREDERICKBURG, Va. (WTVR) – Fredericksburg Police released a sketch of a man who grabbed a female jogger and pulled her into his car. The woman was able to escape her attacker.

In an email to CBS 6, Public Information Officer Natatia Bledsoe said the attempted abduction took place on Highland Road in the Westmont subdivision Saturday morning.

She said the man drove up to the jogger in an “older four-door white vehicle with a red cloth interior.”
