SAN DIEGO - Authorities released computer-generated renderings of two men who grabbed two 20-year-old women in separate abduction attempts near San Diego State University over the course of a week.

During both crimes, which occurred on the evening of April 15 and about 3 a.m. Sunday, the victims were able to break free and escape uninjured, according to SDSU police.

The assailant in the first crime, which took place on Campanile Drive, near Baja Drive, was described as an unshaven 6-foot-tall white man who appeared to be in his mid-30s, wearing square-rimmed glasses and a black-and-red hooded windbreaker. He was driving a gray truck, possibly a four-door Toyota Tacoma.

The second kidnapping attempt occurred in an alley off the 5600 block of Montezuma Road. The victim described the perpetrator as a tall Asian man in his mid-20s, with spiked hair. He was wearing light-colored jeans, a white shirt and black-framed glasses, and fled the scene of the crime in a black four- door BMW or Volkswagen sedan.

Anyone with information about the kidnapping attempts was asked to call San Diego County Crime Stoppers at (888) 580-8477. Tipsters may remain anonymous and could be eligible for a reward of up to $1,000.
