Source: Police investigating attempted assault in Prince George's County

- A Prince George's County woman is warning others after she says a man grabbed her and tried to pull her toward bushes near her District Heights apartment complex Friday.

A police source tells FOX 5 Prince George's County detectives are investigating the incident as an attempted assault.

The woman, who asked to remain anonymous, told FOX 5 she was walking home from the bus stop after returning from her job as a security guard Friday night. It was still light outside when she took a shortcut toward her apartment near Marlboro Pike and Silver Hill Road around 6 p.m. That's when the woman says she felt someone grab her.

"I was just ready to get away. I was scared for my life," the woman said.

While only one man grabbed her, the woman says another man was there and they both ran off after she screamed and was able to pull away. She took a picture of one of the suspects and gave it to police.

It's unclear if the men have been identified or if they are still at large.

A police source confirmed the incident was being investigated as an attempted sex assault.
