The Concord police are investigating an attempted abduction of a 19-year-old woman.
The woman was sitting on a back deck near Curtice Avenue yesterday evening, the police said, when a man attacked her. She told the police he pinned her down and repeatedly smashed her face into the deck.
As he attempted to drag her off the deck, the police said the woman fought him off and escaped into another nearby home. The man fled along the railroad tracks that run on the west side of the Merrimack River, she told the police.
The woman was on the back deck because she was caring for a neighbor’s dog, said Concord police Lt. Timothy O’Malley.
“She was there just checking on a neighbor’s dog, as she’s done before,” he said.
The police said the suspect is a white male, with long dark hair. He has a medium build and is about 5 feet 11 inches tall. He was wearing a dark, knit hat, a tan Carhart-style jacket and ripped blue jeans, the police said. The victim described him to the police as having a large nose and little facial hair.
The alleged attack occurred at about 5 p.m. yesterday, the police said. Anyone with information is asked to contact the Concord Regional Crimeline at 226-3100.
