Woman barely escapes attempted kidnapping
CHICO, Calif. -

Chico police are investigating after a woman reported a chilling kidnapping attempt.

It happened Friday night at around 8:00 p.m. in the 1200 block of West Sacramento Avenue.

The woman told police a white or Hispanic man in his 30s wearing dark clothing made a comment to her as she passed by, and she replied. Then, suddenly, she felt a plastic bag get pulled down over her head.

She then said the suspect dragged her along the sidewalk and pinned her up against a vehicle, likely in an attempt to force her inside.

The woman was ultimately able to free herself by kicking the suspect. She ran away and went to a nearby friend's home.

Chico police are asking anyone in the area at the time of the incident who witnessed something suspicious to give them a call.
