jail-handcuffsThree young Saudi men, between 25 and 27 years, were arrested by the Saudi police for harassing and attempting to kidnap a young woman in a park in Al Baha, reported Al Arabiya news.

The woman had come to the park with her family. When the young men tried to force her into their vehicle, she screamed for help. Two passers-by who heard the screaming rushed to the scene and tried to overpower the kidnappers.

The perpetrators, however, managed to escape the scene after stabbing one of the passers-by. The police later found and arrested the three men in Al-Aqeeq after midnight.

Colonel Bandar Abdelhadi, the Al Baha police spokesman said that the kidnappers confessed to their crimes. Further details about the woman or the stab victim were not reported.
