Woman almost abducted in apartment parking lot

NORTH ROYALTON, OHIO (WOIO) - North Royalton Police say a man tried to abduct a 25-year-old female as she was walking to her car Monday morning.

Officers say the victim was walking from her apartment to her car in Royalwood Apartments when a man approached her.

He had a kitchen knife in his hand and made sexual comments and eventually touched the victim sexually while trying to force her into her car.

The victim resisted, and police think that's what ultimately made the suspect give up and walk away.

Neighbors say they have seen a man wandering around the area lately.

The victim didn't get a good look at the suspect's face because he had been using his clothing to hide his face.

The area is usually well-lit, but someone had unscrewed the light bulbs, leading cops to believe this was a planned out attack.
