San Diego police are asking for the public’s help to track down a man wanted for attempting to kidnap a woman near San Diego State University Sunday.
The woman told SDSU police that a man grabbed her arm and leg and tried to pull her toward a car in an alley on Montezuma Road around 2:45 a.m.
The woman got away without injury. She told police the man did not use a weapon.
Young women living in the area say they're taking precautions through their actions, and conversation.
Rachel de los Santo is a junior at SDSU and lives close to the location of the incident.
"It's shocking to me that something like that would happen so close to home, frankly," she said.
Classmate Allison Steckler said she and her friends are talking about the report and staying alert.
"I'm never just walking alone. I make sure that I am prepared. I'm not listening to my iPhone," Steckler said.
The suspect was described by police as a tall, Asian male in his mid-20s, with spiked hair and glasses with black frames. He was wearing a white shirt with light-colored jeans according to police.
The suspect’s vehicle was described as a black, four-door BMW or Volkswagen sedan officials said.
