SORRENTO — Police have launched a manhunt after a woman vacationing in Maine reported being abducted from a local street and assaulted.

Maine State Police Lt. Christopher Coleman says the woman was walking in the village of Sorrento today when a man armed with a pistol dragged her into a green minivan, where she was sexually assaulted. He says police were combing the roads of Sorrento and surrounding towns searching for the van.

The Bangor Daily News says the victim described the man as about 30 years old, with a stubble beard, short dirty blond hair and blue-green eyes. He was wearing a bright green beanie cap, a peach-colored T-shirt and gray shorts.
