Vinton police are investigating a reported abduction attempt that happened Wednesday morning.
According to Lt. M.A. Vaught, a woman said she was walking to work in the 1000 block of Vinyard Road about 4:50 a.m. when a white man in his 30s or 40s, driving a dark-colored pickup truck, stopped beside her and opened his passenger door.
The woman told police she smacked the man in the face with her purse and screamed after he grabbed her by her shoulder. The man then sped off toward the intersection of Vinyard and Hardy roads.
Detectives are investigating the case. Anyone with information can call Vinton police at 983-0617.
