SAN DIEGO (CNS) - A knife-wielding man made a failed attempt to rob and abduct a woman on a Valencia Park roadside Tuesday afternoon.
The thief confronted the 23-year-old pedestrian in the 5500 block of Dream Street shortly before 1:30 p.m., according to San Diego police.
After trying in vain to rob the victim and attempting to force her to leave the area with him, the bandit fled on foot toward Churchward Street. It was unclear what prompted him to abort the crime, SDPD Detective Gary Hassen said.
The woman described the crook as a heavyset, roughly 5-foot-6-inch man in his mid- to late 20s, with a shaved head and wearing long shorts and a light-colored shirt.
