VINTON, Va. -

Vinton police are looking for a man after a reported would-be abduction.

It happened just before 5 o'clock Wednesday morning on Vineyard Road near the Bojangles.

Police say a woman was walking to work, when a dark pick up truck pulled up beside her.

Reportedly the driver pulled up beside her, opened the door and tried to drag her into the truck.

The woman says she hit him with her purse and he lost his grasp.

The driver - described as a white man in his 30 or 40s, was last seen driving to the intersection of Vineyard and Hardy Roads.

If you have any information you're asked to called the Vinton PD.
