Deputies are seeking a man who attempted to kidnap an 18-year-old woman on the Northwest Side last Saturday.

Deputy Dawn Barkman, a spokeswoman for the Pima County Sheriff’s Department, said in a news release that the woman called 911 about 10:30 a.m. on April 11.

She said she had been walking in the 9700 block of North Thornydale Road when a man who was driving a van offered her a ride.

The man got out of the van and grabbed her before forcing her to the ground, according to Barkman.

Barkman couldn’t say how the woman escaped from the man.

“She must have been able to fight him off at least somewhat, because in the report it doesn’t indicate what happened,” Barkman said.

The man is described as being in his 30s with a dark complexion and silver, wire-framed glasses. He is approximately 6 feet tall, is unshaven and has a mustache.

Our Digital Archive

This blog page archives the entire digital archive of the Tucson Citizen from 1993 to 2009. It was gleaned from a database that was not intended to be displayed as a public web archive. Therefore, some of the text in some stories displays a little oddly. Also, this database did not contain any links to photos, so though the archive contains numerous captions for photos, there are no links to any of those photos.

There are more than 230,000 articles in this archive.

In TucsonCitizen.com Morgue, Part 1, we have preserved the Tucson Citizen newspaper's web archive from 2006 to 2009. To view those stories (all of which are duplicated here) go to Morgue Part 1
