MONTESANO, Wash. - Police have arrested a man suspected of trying to kidnap a 20-year-old woman Montesano last week.

Isaac Gusman, 41, is accused of attempted kidnapping and assault. Police credit a tip from the public for finding Gusman with his truck deep in the woods of Grays Harbor County Tuesday morning.

Police believe Gusman had been living in a camp for the past several weeks on U.S. Forest Service Land 10 miles off the Kelley Road in the Canyon River area.

WATCH: Montesano Police released surveillance video showing the moments before the attempted abduction:

Police said the woman was walking near Church Street and McBryde last Wednesday, when Gusman drove past her. He then got out of the truck, mentioned he had a flat tire, then pulled a gun on her and ordered her to get inside, police said.

When she screamed and fell to the ground, Gusman got back in the truck and drove way, according to investigators.

Updates to follow soon.
