Temple police are investigating an attempted kidnapping that took place Saturday in Temple.

Officers responded to a call from the 1200 block of West Avenue G around 2:22 P.M. There, the victim reported walking near the 2300 block of West Avenue P when she was approached by a blue vehicle with Arizona plates. A white male wearing a white shirt and blue jeans asked if she needed a ride. The victim refused and began walking away, prompting the man to grab her and attempt to force her into his vehicle. The woman told officers she struck the man across the face, then sped off in his car.

Investigators ask that anyone with information call the Temple Police Department at (254) 298-5500.
