Red Deer RCMP are looking for help identifying a man who forced a woman to stop her vehicle and then attempted to climb in.

Police said that around 1 a.m. last Friday a 19-year-old woman was driving on 32nd Street in West Park when she encountered a man in a truck who waved at her and attempted to get her to pull over.
