A woman recently reported a kidnapping attempt in Hoschton.

Jackson County Sheriff's Office deputies were called to Montvale Dr. for the report.

The complainant said she and her juvenile cousin had gotten a ride from an acquaintance. After he dropped off the cousin, he went to the complainant's residence, but said they should go get a bottle of alcohol and wouldn't let her out of the car. He reportedly grabbed her by the arm, then drove to a Hwy. 332 store where the woman was able to climb out of the open window and run into the store.

She said she feared for her life while she was in the vehicle.
