Investigation underway for abduction attempt

The Fort Worth and TCU Police Departments are investigating a reported abduction attempt early this morning two blocks south of campus, according to an e-mail from TCU Police.

At about 3:30 a.m., a female student was dropped off at her residence by friends and was trying to enter her car when the suspect grabbed her and attempted to abduct her, according to the e-mail. She was able to call for help and fight off the suspect.

The suspect was described as a heavy-set, clean-shaven Hispanic male in his mid-20s who was wearing a dark baseball cap. The suspect drove a dark-colored car, and the student said she saw a second suspect in the car who never exited the vehicle. The student had minor scrapes and abrasions from the incident.
