CMPD says the woman was using an ATM off Woodlawn Road a little after 2 a.m. Friday when the stranger approached her. The woman told the police that the man forced his way into her car with a weapon, drove her to another location and then attempted to sexually assault her.

Police say the man then drove away in the woman’s vehicle, which was found Saturday.
