DUNDEE, Oregon - A woman and her 13-year-old son escaped from a man police say tried to kidnap them Thursday morning after they had completed a morning jog.

Newberg-Dundee Police Department representative Capt. Jeff Kosmicki said the incident occurred in Dundee near the 1100 block of Southeast Ash Street. The man drove his blue, 1973 Chevy pickup alongside a woman and child and offered them a ride. When they declined, the man attempted to force them into his truck.

The woman and her son then fled on foot, ran to a nearby home on Ash Street, and pounded on the door where Erika Carlile lives with her mother Debi. Erika and her mother said the woman and her son pushed past the door and went inside yelling, "You gotta help me! Please help!"

Police were called and 27-year-old Jordan Chase Brisbin was arrested.

Police believe Brisbin picked the woman because she frequently walked in front of his house. Brisbin indicated that he chased the woman only because she tried to set his house on fire. He also said he was trying to give her 13-year-old son an iPod.

Brisbin faces criminal trespass and kidnapping charges.
