Detectives say she was approached by a man she doesn’t know after he got out of a vehicle.
He is accused of trying to speak to her, before grabbing her and attempting to push her to the ground.
The woman managed to break free, run to a nearby business and contact police, investigators say.
The 22-year-old Sunshine Beach man has been charged with one count each of assault with intent to commit rape and deprivation of liberty – unlawfully detain/confine.
He is due in Maroochydore Magistrates Court today.
