“Così, it’s certainly not an area where you’d believe you were in danger in a walk by yourself at 8 la mattina,” Cap. Curtis Hooley told FOX13 Salt Lake City.
La vittima, a 30-year-old woman, was punched in the face during a brief struggle with the male suspect, ha detto la polizia. She was later treated for a contusion below one of her eyes.
The suspect was unable to drag the woman into the trunk of his vehicle and drove off from the scene, ha detto la polizia.
Some high school students witnessed the car speed away and tried to catch up to write down its license plate but were unsuccessful, police told the station.
“That’s pretty amazing that they were willing to get involved at the level that they did,” Hooley said. “That speaks highly of them and the people they are.”
Police shared still images taken from video footage of the suspected vehicle, believed to be a gray or silver 2005 per 2010 Honda Civic.
Police said detectives have interviewed several witnesses who saw the assault unfold but are still asking for the public’s help in identifying the suspect’s vehicle.
Few details were known about the suspect, who was described as a man wearing black clothes and a face mask.
