Woman fights off abductor with kung fu skills

When a man tried to abduct a 20-year-old woman Saturday, he got a foot to the face.

A 20-year-old woman told police she was walking near East Eighth Street and North Lincoln Street at about 1 a.m. when a dark-colored SUV occupied with three men pulled up beside her, Bloomington Police Department Sgt. Dana Cole said.

One of the men in the backseat got out of the vehicle and grabbed her by the arm and tried to bring her into the vehicle, the victim said.

The victim said she is trained in kung fu and kicked the male in the face. He then reentered the vehicle, and the occupants drove off.

She didn’t sustain any injuries, Cole said.

No license plate number was obtained, and the case is listed as inactive, Cole said.
