The police are looking for a Hispanic man who allegedly tried to abduct a young woman on the border of Sunnyside and Woodside on Tuesday morning.
A 20-year old woman–who was walking to the subway–was accosted at about 6:30 am on 40th Street and 50th Ave. A man pulled over in a white pick-up truck with a cab, and tried to pull her into it, according to police.
The woman was saved by a nearby man who happened to hear her screams and interceded before the perpetrator was able to do any harm.
The police are currently working on a sketch of the alleged perpetrator and will be circulating it shortly.
They are looking for leads.
