WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — Police say a man who agreed to help a woman with directions in Wilmington early Friday then lured her out of her car and pulled a knife on her.
They say it all started just after 2 a.m. near the intersection of 3rd and Dawson Streets when a woman pulled up beside another car and asked a man for directions to Rankin Street.
Police say the man in the car told the woman to follow him to the Wilmington street she was searching for. The man then led the woman to the 1500 block of Queen Street, where he lured her out of the car.
That’s when the would-be robber pulled a knife on her, but police say the woman fought back. They say the man, who was driving a silver KIA SUV, and wearing a red tank top, got away with nothing.
Police say no injuries were reported at the time of the crime.
