Zionsville police are searching for a man accused of attempting to abduct a woman as she took out her trash at her apartment complex.
Tina M. Rattinger, 35, told police that a Hispanic male grabbed her from behind around 11:30 a.m. March 28 as she was putting her trash in a compacter at the Domain at Bennett Farms apartments.
