Attempted abduction in the Greenwood neighborhood**UPDATE**

A woman fought off a man who tried to pull her into a van. Tonight, just shortly before 8:00 p.m., a woman was walking eastbound back home from the Fred Meyer on 85th at 3rd NW when a white van pulled up beside her, and a Hispanic male passenger said hi to her from inside the van. 

This male then exited the van and got behind the female, he attempted to force her into the van. While doing so he pulled a black ski mask down over his face.  The woman fought frantically and was able to resist and free herself. The Hispanic male got back in the van and fled the scene with a second Hispanic male driving away eastbound. The van is described as being white with the letters “XYF” spray painted in red on the side of the van. The victim called 911.

She sustained minor scrapes and scratches to her hands. Officers responded and conducted an area search with negative results.

Anyone with information about this vehicle and or the suspects is asked to call 911.
