However, police say he also tried to carjack a 60-year-old woman.
The attack happened at the Redners Market at Knights and Dunksferry roads late last month.
The victim, who didn't want to be identified, told Action News she did what she could to escape.
"So the only thing I knew, because he had a grip on my neck, was to kick him with the one leg that was hanging out of the car and when I did that, I screamed really loud and I immediately shut the door," the victim said.
She called police, but they were unable to track the suspect down.
