Miami-Dade police told Fox News they are investigating the incident as abduction and said it happened at the Wendy's on Southwest 88th Street in Miami on Wednesday evening.
Investigators said a woman “in distress” walked into the restaurant at around 6:15 p.m. and pleaded with restaurant employees to help her as she ran to the bathroom.
The man then walked into the Wendy’s and followed the woman into the bathroom, police said. After the couple came out of the restroom, the woman went behind the counter. Investigators said the suspect walked up to the counter and argued with the woman before going behind the counter as employees were calling the police.
The man then grabbed the woman by the arm, and forced her out of the Wendy’s, police said.
The victim was bracing herself on the door frame, unsuccessfully trying to escape, investigators added.
The man forced her into a black Chrysler 300 and drove away, police told Fox News.
Police are asking for the public's help identifying and finding the man or woman and urge anyone with information to call Crime Stoppers at 305-471-TIPS (8477).
