NZ NewswireNZ Newswire 7/05/2016

An attempt has been made to abduct an 18-year-old woman from a street in Dunedin.

Two men tried to haul the woman into the car on Fort St, near Otago University, on Saturday afternoon but she fought them off, police say.

The back seat passenger tried to pull her inside the vehicle while the driver tried to push her in.

"The victim managed to fight her way out of the vehicle and was uninjured," police said in a statement.

Police are now hunting for the woman's attackers.

The car was described as an older 1990s-type stationwagon in a dirty condition with black roof racks.
