A woman out jogging in a Forest Acres neighborhood says she was approached by a man who showed her a handgun then tried to get her into his vehicle, police say.
The incident occurred around 8 a.m. Sunday on Falcon Drive near A.C. Flora High School, according to a Forest Acres police department advisory.
The man, who was driving a small, faded red sport utility vehicle, showed the woman what she believed was a black frame handgun and told her to “get in,” but the woman ran away and found a police officer.
The suspect is described as a black male, between 20 and 30 years of age, wearing a black skull cap, the advisory said. The SUV is missing a spare tire on the tail gate.
