Taking the hollaback movement one step further, a woman in Fontana snapped pictures of a man who tried to grab her and force her into his car yesterday.

KTLA reports that the 22-year-old woman was walking down Sierra Avenue when she saw that a blue car was following her. After a few minutes, the guy driving the car -- described as Hispanic, between 35 and 40 years old, and about 225 pounds -- pulled over, jumped out and, on the busy street and in broad daylight, tried to kidnap her.

She broke free and got some pictures of which he's smiling really, really creepily.

NBC Los Angeles notes that the car the suspect was driving is a 2010 Mitsubishi Endeavor, and police are asking anyone with information to call call the Fontana Police Department Tip Line at (909) 350-TIPS.
