On December 24, 2019 at approximately 8:30 a.m., a woman called the Safford Police Department to report that a man had tried to get into her car while stopped at a stop sign. The woman said that she was traveling south on 8th Avenue and stopped at the four-way stop at 8th Avenue and 8th Street. While stopped, she noticed a hispanic male on the east side of the street waving his arms in the air to get her attention. While she was looking in that direction, she said that a white male with facial hair tried to enter her car through the passenger side door.
She told police that she immediately drove away and noticed the white male running from the scene. She said that she did not know either of the men.
An officer patrolled the area but was unable to locate anybody matching the description.
