North Glengarry – Standing at the end of her driveway, a North Glengarry woman saved herself from the clutches of two would-be abductors.

On Sept. 5, around 5:00 p.m., on Concession 2, a van approached the woman's residence and asked for directions. As she approached the vehicle, a male passenger grabbed her shirt and attempted to pull her inside.
Police are searching for a black cargo van with tinted windows. The male driver is described as 30-year-old Aboriginal male, with a stocky build, pot belly and weighing between 250 – 300lbs.
His passenger is described as a 30-year-old Black male, with a stocky build, pot belly and weighing approximately 250 – 300lbs. Both men had short dark hair.
The female freed herself without injury and called the police from inside her residence.
OPP Const. Pete Robertson said this is the first attempted abduction of the year in his jurisdiction.
"When a vehicle pulls up and it's not familiar, keep your distance," said Robertson. "She did the right thing by being strong and making sure she got away."
