Police are on the lookout for a man that they say tried to kidnap a young woman in Queens.

A sketch of the suspect can be seen above.

It happened just after midnight Sunday.

Police say an 18-year-old woman was walking through College Point when the man pulled up beside her and asked if she wanted a ride.

When the woman said no, police say the suspect got out of his car, grabbed her around the waist, covered her mouth and tried to drag her back into the vehicle.

The woman fought back, and the suspect ran back to his car.

Anyone with information on the case should contact the Crime Stoppers hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS, or text CRIMES and then enter TIP577, or visit www.nypdcrimestoppers.com.
