Police are investigating an attempted abduction on Harvard Road

Police are investigating an attempted abduction that occurred near the College Park Metro Station Thursday night, according to a UMD Alert.

At about 11:45 p.m. that night, a female student was walking in the 4700 block of Harvard Road when a male “knocked her over and attempted to pull her in the opposite direction,” the alert read.

The student screamed, grabbing the attention of two people who came over to help her before the suspect fled toward Route 1, according to the alert.

The suspect, a 30 to 35-year-old man with “an unhealthy thin” build, carried a black backpack and was wearing a black hoodie and sunglasses, the alert read.

A review of area camera footage is underway.

Prince George’s County Police were not immediately available for comment.
