A man has been charged after a woman was allegedly dragged into a car and strangled.
Nottinghamshire Police said officers were called in the early hours of Friday (3 February) after a woman reported a man trying to kidnap and assault her after she had flagged down a car.
The victim, in her 40s, was left with cuts and grazes to her arms and legs but was not seriously injured after the incident on Carlton Road, Worksop, Nottinghamshire, just after 4.40am, police said.
The force said an investigation led officers to a suspect who was arrested shortly after the incident.
Craig Grant, of Lancaster Gardens, Worksop, has been charged with threats to kill, kidnap, actual bodily harm and strangulation.
The 45-year-old has been remanded into custody and is due to appear at Nottingham Magistrates’ Court on Monday (6 February).
Detective Constable Karam Kaur, of Nottinghamshire Police, said: "These are very serious offences, and our investigation remains ongoing but I am pleased we have now been able to bring a charge in this case.
"Officers from across the West Bridgford’s Criminal Investigation Department have been working extremely hard since Friday to understand exactly what happened and support the victim who thankfully was not seriously injured."
