TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Police are asking for help identifying a man they say tried to kidnap a woman Sunday morning.

According to the Tucson Police Department, the suspect is described as a Caucasian, 30 to 40 years old, about 5'8" tall with a medium build, graying black hair, blue eyes and an unkempt beard.

He was last seen wearing a black leather jacket with brown stripes on the sleeves and faded blue jeans.

He was seen driving a white 1990s model sport utility vehicle.

Police say the suspect approached the woman, who was walking near East University and North 3rd Avenue, at about 9:15 a.m. Sunday.

He was in his vehicle and asked for directions. He offered her money to personally guide him, but she refused to go with him and he drove away.

As she continued to walk north on 3rd Avenue near East 2nd Street, the suspect approached her on foot.

According to police, he picked her up and carried her to a nearby alley. He dropped her and ran away when she started screaming.

The victim was not hurt in the incident.

Anyone with information about the identity or whereabouts of the suspect is urged to call 911 or 88-CRIME.
