Attempted Kidnapping Trial

An East Texas man charged with attempted aggravated kidnapping went to trial in Lufkin.

Authorities say in February 2007, Jason Richard Womack was driving in Cherokee County when he saw a woman riding a bike. Womack allegedly offered to give the woman a ride. She reportedly accepted. Womack is accused of pulling over on the side of the road and trying to drag the woman into a ditch. Several witnesses testified that they saw the alledged victim with muddy clothes and in a emotionally distraught state after the alledged attack. Womack's trial continues tomorrow at the Angelina County Courthouse.
