The Temple Police Department is seeking information regarding a suspicious incident.

Police said officers responded at about 3 p.m. to the Stonehaven Drive area. A female victim said an unknown man approached her, grabbed her hand and grabbed her around the neck while attempting to pull her into a white truck.

"The female was able to get away when the male attempted to follow her," said Temple police. "The male eventually stopped following her and left."
