LEWISBURG -

Police in Lewisburg are looking for a man who may have been trying to abduct a pair of women at the Lewisburg Walmart.

Investigators are looking for a white man who is between 5-feet 10-inches and 6-feet 2-inches tall.  He followed two women to their vehicle at around 8:18 p.m. on Wednesday.  As the women were getting into their vehicle, the man claimed into the back seat.  Police said the man assaulted the women and threatened to hurt them.  Officers believe the man wanted to abduct and/or rob the women.

One of the women reportedly screamed and the suspect got out of the car.  He ran off toward the Jefferson Square Shopping Center.  Anyone with information on the incident is asked to call the Lewisburg, Police Department at 304-645-1626 as soon as possible.
