Keith Richard Griffin, 42, was charged with abduction and malicious wounding, authorities said.

A 33-year-old Woodbridge woman reported that an unknown man walked toward her and attempted to pull her toward a nearby area as she was walking near Castille Court and Oakwood Drive at 5:10 a.m. on Saturday, police said.
