Rochester, MN (KROC-AM News)  A Rochester woman nearly lost her car Tuesday to a stranger she had offered a ride to.

Police say the 23 year old woman was in the downtown around 1 p.m. when a lady asked her for a ride to Winona, saying she would pay her $300. The younger woman told her no but offered her a ride to catch a shuttle.

They eventually stopped at the Crossroads Shopping Center and that’s where the Winona woman sprayed the victim in the face with hair spray.
