The Eugene Police Department asked that we share the following information about an event that took place Tuesday afternoon.

A man in a white SUV allegedly tried to kidnap a young woman who was on foot near Everyone’s Market on Echo Hollow Road. The young woman – who is not a student – managed to escape and is safe and unharmed, but police want everyone to be aware of their surroundings and keep an eye out for a white GMC Yukon with tinted windows.

Although this did not take place in Shasta’s immediate neighborhood, police are asking that everyone be especially alert.
