    A bicyclist may have prevented a sexual assault in Montgomery County, Md.

    A 23-year-old woman was attacked shortly after midnight Tuesday in Montgomery Village.

    Police said the woman was walking along Montgomery Village Avenue near Stewartown Road when she noticed someone following her.

    A man then grabbed her and dragged her into the woods. She yelled and screamed.

    A bicyclist riding by apparently startled the attacker, and the victim managed to break free.

    Police are still searching for that man.
