A UH Manoa student said she was walking alone toward campus on a sidewalk adjacent to the recreational facility at about 10:30 p.m. Thursday when a car stopped behind her and an unidentified man grabbed her by the arm and pulled her toward the car, police said.
The woman told police when she yelled the man released her, and she was able to get away.
