"There were witnesses who were there. The victim was able to escape. And everyone was doing their part to ensure that this incident transpired in a way that no one was seriously hurt," said Alex Bastian, with the San Francisco District Attorney's office.

Bravo is accused of grabbing a woman last Saturday in Pacific Heights and trying to force her into his truck. A man passing by intervened and scared the attacker away.

Police used witness descriptions and arrested Bravo the next day in Petaluma after a short chase.
