Man Sought After Trying to Drag Woman Into Car

Police on Friday were searching for a man who tried to pull a woman into his car by the hair last month while the woman was walking, an attack that was stopped by a passerby.

The man pulled the woman by the hair and dragged her on July 29 about 8 p.m. on West Maple Street in Pasadena, police said in a news release.

The woman fell to the ground.

The kidnapper fled when a man driving by stopped to help the woman.

A search for the attacker turned up nothing.

He's described as Latino, in his 20s, with a light complexion, thin build, clean shaven, and has light brown hair.

He was seen in a late 1990s, early 2000s pick-up truck, possibly an extended cab, white in color, missing the front bumper, and possibly a Dodge Ram.
