Man Sought In Attempted Abduction At Potomac Mills Mall

Police in Prince William County, Va., are investigating the attempted abduction of a woman last night at the Potomac Mills Mall in Woodbridge.

The incident occurred just before 9:30 p.m. last night in a parking lot at the mall by Nazarene Way. A 34-year-old woman from Lorton told police that as she was standing next to her vehicle after getting off work, she was approached by a man who was asking for directions. Police say the man then grabbed the woman and began to choke her, falling to the ground. The suspect then demanded the victim's car keys, according to police, and attempted to force her into the backseat of the vehicle.

The woman was able to escape on foot and just suffered minor injuries.

The suspect in the case is described as an Hispanic male in his early 20's, 5-feet-5-inches tall, weighing 150 pounds with short black hair. He was last seen wearing a black beanie-style cap. Anyone with information is asked to contact Prince William County police.
