Police say a woman is safe after a reported assault and abduction attempt Thursday morning.

The woman told officers that he drove east into a nearby neighborhood, where she was able to escape. He then allegedly caught back up to her and attacked her, hitting her in the head and kicking her. The woman managed to get away, and raced to McDonalds for help.
