A Florida trucker arrested on Wednesday is accused of trying to abduct a woman on Interstate 10 in Acadia Parish.
Salvador Navarro, 24, of Plant City, Florida, motioned to the woman that her tire was going flat, then grabbed her from behind after she pulled over to inspect her tires, according to the Acadia Parish Sheriff’s Office.
The woman jumped into her vehicle and locked the doors, and she obtained Navarro’s license plate information as he drove away from the scene in his 18 wheeler, the Sheriff’s Office said.
The incident happened around 6:30 a.m. on Feb. 28.
Navarro was booked into the Polk County, Florida, jail on counts of sexual battery and attempted abduction, the Sheriff’s Office said. He remained in jail in lieu of $140,000 bail.
