According to an arrest affidavit:

The victim, who is also 28, told police she was walking east on the south side of the bridge about 10:45 a.m. Monday when she saw a man walking west on the opposite side of the bridge.

She told police the man, later identified as Martin, crossed the bridge and began following her. When he continued to follow her as she walked south on N. Peninsula Avenue, she called her fiancé and told him she was worried.

The woman was able to tell her fiancé where she was before Martin placed his hands over her mouth and began dragging her toward a breezeway of a building in the 300 block of Harvey Street.
