She struggled with the attacker as he attempted to drag her toward the Rouge River. Police said the man attempted to remove her clothing and told her that he wanted to have sex with her.

The victim was able to fight off the man and run away. She flagged down a motorist and used his phone to call police. 

Galloway was arraigned and held on a $750,000 bond.
