The man, believed to be in his 40s, apparently grabbed a woman and tried to get her into his truck as she walked home on Feb. 2.
Police are asking for the public’s help in finding a man who tried to kidnap a woman on Capitol Hill last week.
The man, driving a truck, was standing beside his vehicle on Feb. 2 when the 29-year-old woman noticed him as she walked home at 11:30 p.m., police said. She was in the 1600 block of Bellevue Avenue, and as she walked past the man, he grabbed her and told her to get in the truck, police said.
Investigators on Thursday released surveillance video of the incident. The footage shows the man driving up to the curb, parking and then reaching inside his vehicle before attacking the woman.
When the woman screamed, the man apparently let go of her and drove away, police said.

Investigators believe the man is in his 40s and between 5 feet 8 and 5 feet 10 inches tall. He has a medium build, and he was wearing a dark hat during the incident, police said. Witnesses described his truck as a dark-blue 2000 Chevy Silverado with tinted windows, police said.
