CHESAPEAKE, Va. (WAVY) - Chesapeake Police are looking for the man who tired to abduct a woman Friday night on Route 168 near the Mount Pleasant exit.
"It was the scariest feeling in my life," said the 25-year-old victim.
The Chesapeake woman says she was on her way home from a shopping trip.
"My car just stopped," she added. "Something was wrong with it."
Her car stalled on Route 168 and her cell phone was dead. So, she decided to get out and walk towards home.
"A couple cars stopped to see if I needed anything," she said. "I said 'no,' and then I see this pickup truck."
The woman told the driver of the truck she didn't need a ride, but she got a sense something wasn't right.
She said the truck then pulled back up beside her. The driver pushed the passenger side door open, leaned across the passenger seat and grabbed her.
"He just pulled me in," she added. "It was just like 30 seconds of me trying to get out."
She was forced in, but she made sure she wasn't going to become a victim.
"I just started punching him," she said. "He kept grabbing my arm and just pulling on my shirt. I kept punching him and punching him until one punch hit his head, his hat fell off and his head hit the window."
At that point the man pushed the woman out of the truck and drove off.
"I would never want anyone to experience that ever," she added.
It all happened around four, right during rush hour traffic.
"I could have been raped," she said. "I could have been killed."
She was able to give police a very vague description of the suspect. She told officers the suspect was a white man with a long beard with a red baseball cap. He was driving a silver pick up truck.
Newport News Police said they are looking for the person who drove into the wall of a car wash and stole a control box.
