State Police say a woman reported being dragged into some woods near Mohegan Sun, and attacked by a man who had previously offered to sell her drugs.

Police say the incident began shortly after 3 am on Saturday, when the woman was approached by a man who offered to sell her narcotics.

The woman took out money from an ATM, and gave him the cash in a parking lot near the Winter garage.  She said the man then grabbed her arm, and dragged her across Cove Road, into a wooded area.

When the man tried to sexually assault the woman, she got away and went back to the casino with minor injuries.

Police were unable to find the man, but they released security camera images of him.
