Woman Escapes After Being Forced into Car

NORTH FORT MYERS, Fla. (AP) -- Authorities say a southwest Florida woman escaped after being forced into a car and assaulted.

The Lee County Sheriff's Office reports the incident happened in North Fort Myers Friday morning.

Deputies received a report of a female being forced into a red Toyota Corolla. About 30 minutes later, they received another report of a woman jumping out of a red vehicle. Investigators determined it was the same woman in both incidents.

The woman, who has not been identified, said she was approached by an unknown man. After a brief conversation he forced her into the car.

The victim was taken to a local hospital for treatment of cuts, bruises and a fracture to the side of her face.

Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 800-780-TIPS.
