DC Police Investigating Possible Abduction Caught on Tape
Police is investigating a possible abduction in the 2500 block of Pennsylvania Avenue in Southeast, Washington, DC.
Someone was so frightened by the events on a surveillance video, they called 911 for police help.
But by the time, police arrived, the event was over and the people involved were gone and the cops were left wondering if there was even a crime committed.
The possible abduction happened around 11 p.m. Sunday.
“A concerned citizen was worried about a possible abduction that might have taken place,” said Lt. William Farr of the Metropolitan Police Department.
On the surveillance video, an unidentified man is seen approaching a woman and appears to be forcing her into a car against her will.
The female appears to be approximately 5’6” tall, weighing 145 to 150 pounds. She has shoulder length hair and was wearing a black shirt, dark shorts and dark colored shoes.
The male subject appears to be a black male, standing at approximately 6 feet tall, weighing approximately 160 pounds. He was wearing a white tank top and dark pants. The suspect forced the female into a blue Dodge Charger.
But is it really an abduction?
“The male grabs the female and forces her from where she is into the vehicle and that concerns us a little bit and we just want to know that she is okay,” said Farr.
So far, police have not received a report of a missing person that matches the woman in this video and it could be an argument between two people that know each other.
The Metropolitan Police Department is seeking to identify any of the individuals involved, both the male and the female, or anyone with information concerning the incident.
Anyone with information about this case is asked to call the police at (202) 727-9099 or 1-888-919-CRIME (1-888-919-2746).
Additionally, anonymous information may be submitted to D.C. CRIME SOLVERS at 1-866-411-TIPS and to the department’s TEXT TIP LINE by text messaging 50411. If the information provided by the caller to the Crime Solvers Unit leads to an arrest and indictment, that caller will be eligible for a reward of up to $1,000.
