Seattle police searching for white van after attempted abduction

Seattle police are searching for a white van after a man driving the vehicle apparently tried to abduct a woman in the 8500 block of Fremont Avenue North.

Police say a woman was walking in the area around 8 p.m. when a white van pulled up to her. A man wearing a black mask jumped out of the vehicle, grabbed the woman and pulled her inside.

The woman fought frantically and managed to free herself, police say, and the van then drove off. The woman sustained minor scrapes and scratches to her hands.

In a Twitter post, police described the van as having the letters XYF spray-painted on the side.
