GENESEE COUNTY (WJRT) - (05/18/15) - Two women were nearly snatched off the streets within 48 hours of each other.

Police say they aren't related, but the women who escaped are telling very similar stories.

The first happened Friday in the City of Mt. Morris. The next, Sunday morning on Flint's west side.

A 20-year-old woman was approached by a man at the intersection of Flushing and Chevrolet in Flint. He tried to force her into his truck, but she fought back.

Someone nearby noticed the commotion and was able to help scare the man off.

Flint Police Chief James Tolbert said the man they're looking for was driving a newer model white extended pickup truck. He's described as a heavy set white man with round glasses, curly gray hair and a beard.

Just 48 hours earlier, a 19-year-old woman was walking near Washington and Barber in the city of Mt. Morris.

A man pulled up, offering a ride. When she refused, he got aggressive and tried to force her in his SUV. She fought back and got away.

Police are looking for a black man in his 40s. He is said to have scruffy facial hair. He's driving 2006 black Yukon that looks like its been lifted with chrome rims.

If you do know anything about either one of these attempted abductions, please call police right away.
