PROVO, Utah (AP) -- Police are looking for two men who allegedly attempted to abduct a 19-year-old woman.

Police say the incident happened yesterday afternoon in Provo after the woman crossed State Street at 1720 North.

Authorities say two men in a blue car pulled up next to the woman. Police say the passenger opened his door, grabbed the woman by the wrist and attempted to pull her into the car. However, the woman was able to get away.

Provo Police Captain Rick Healey says the passenger was wearing a tan shirt and shorts and tennis shoes. He says the man also had a large gap in his front teeth.

Healey says the driver is only described as having darker skin.

Police say the car had numbers on the windshield, possibly a price tag or a model year, suggesting it may have been on a test drive or recently purchased.
