Police in Windsor need the public’s help after a woman reported an attempted abduction in Old Riverside.

The woman says she was walking along Wyandotte St. E at Ford Blvd. around 7pm Wednesday when a man came up behind her and forced her into a vehicle. She escaped a few blocks down the road when the vehicle stopped at a red light.

Police hope to release more information about the incident Thursday afternoon.

Investigators don’t have a description of the man or the vehicle, so they ask anyone who saw anything suspicious in the area to give them a call. The number is 519-255-6700 ext. 4000. Tips can also be submitted to Crime Stoppers at 519-258-8477 (TIPS), on Facebook or at www.catchcrooks.com.
