Pittsburgh Police are investigating an incident that involved the apparent harassment of a 32-year-old woman from Mt. Oliver.

The unnamed woman was at the corner of 18th Street and Arlington Avenue near a gas station when she was approached by a vehicle with a driver and a passenger.

After some words were exchanged, the woman was walking away and the vehicle was keeping pace with her. She told police she thought she heard the driver shout to his passenger to "put her in the truck."

The woman ran back to the service station where an attendant called the police.

The vehicle later was spotted by the police and the unnamed driver, who police said is 33 and from the Beltzhoover area, was charged in an unrelated drunken driving incident.

A news release from police indicated the Allegheny County District Attorney's Office is weighing what other charges are to be filed in connection with the incident.
