MOUNT EDEN, Bronx (WABC) -- The NYPD is investigating the attempted kidnapping of a 16-year-old girl in the Bronx.

The kidnapping happened early Saturday in the Mount Eden section.

The victim was walking to the subway station when a stranger came up from behind, put her in a chokehold and claimed to have a gun and knife. He tried to force her into a vehicle.

She fought back and broke free, but only after he struck her in the face.

Police say the suspect drove away on Grand Concourse in a black, four-door Sedan.
