Police put up roadblocks Tuesday following a report of three female soldiers that Arabs tried to kidnap one of them as they were making their way to an IDF base in central Israel.
The soldiers said that as they were walking to the base, a white car, probably a Honda, slowed down and the men in the car started harassing them. The soldiers ignored the men in the car, but the men nonetheless continued to follow the girls.

After they refused to drive away, one of the men grabbed one of the soldiers and tried to push her into the car.
She fought him and resisted but he would not let go, at which point her friends pulled her toward them until they managed to rescue her.
The car then immediately drove away.
Following the servicewomen's report, police started scouring the area for the suspects. The three soldiers were taken to the Hadera police station to deliver their testimonies.
