MOUNT KISCO, New York (WABC) -- A man was arrested Monday for allegedly attempting to abduct a woman at gunpoint in Mount Kisco, Westchester County.
Police said 23-year-old Kyle Gregg, of Cortlandt, was charged with attempted kidnapping and criminal possession of a weapon.
Gregg was allegedly driving his gray Nissan along Route 117 just south of Bedford around 11:35 p.m. Saturday when he pulled up next to a woman walking home from work along the side of the highway.
Police said Gregg offered her a ride, but she refused.
A short time later, Gregg allegedly stopped his vehicle next to the woman again and demanded that she get inside. When she refused, police said allegedly pointed a handgun at her and told her again to get inside his car.
The woman ran toward a Burger King for help, and the driver fled the scene.
"She was pretty nervous, but she had a pretty good recollection of things, and everything that she described to us seems as though it's very accurate, including the description of the handgun that we have subsequently found on the suspect," said Dep. Inspector John Hodges.
The victim was even able to recall that the Nissan had out-of-state plates that matched up to a rental car with Maine license plates.
Detectives were able to later identify the driver and found the suspected vehicle near the Cortlandt-Putnam Valley border around 4:40 p.m. Monday. Police then arrested Gregg and recovered a loaded .22-caliber handgun during the arrest.
Gregg was arraigned Tuesday, and bail was set at $25,000 cash/$50,000 bond.
