A 24-year-old woman told Atherton police her screams drove off a man who was attempting to kidnap her at about 2 a.m. Saturday morning, March 19, on Middlefield Road near Oak Grove Avenue.
She told police she was waiting for a bus when a man driving a lowered four-door sedan drove by several times, and solicited her for sex. He got out of his car and chased and grabbed her while she was on her cellphone reporting the incident, police said.
Menlo Park and Atherton police responded but could not find the man. Atherton police are investigating the incident and ask that anyone with information, including video, call the department at (650) 688-6500.
