Police in Philadelphia have released dramatic video of a suspect apparently abducting a woman in the city’s Germantown section Sunday night. Twenty-two-year-old Carlesha Freeland-Gaither was last seen around 9:40 p.m. Sunday in the 100 block of West Coulter Street, reports CBS Philly. A witness said the woman was yelling for help as a man forced her into a dark-colored sedan.
Surveillance video released Monday by Philadelphia police shows a man driving down a street, parking his car and walking a short distance out of the camera’s view, back towards the direction from which he came. He’s then seen apparently chasing a woman across the street before grabbing her and forcing her down the block and into the car.
Police say the woman in the video is Freeland-Gaither. A witness told police he saw the woman yelling for help and being forced into the car, possibly a gray Ford Taurus. The witness said the woman’s glasses and cell phone fell onto the road.
As the car drove away, the woman kicked out at least one of the car’s rear windows. CBS Philly showed images of shattered glass on the roadway near the site where the woman was reportedly abducted.
Police say the car was last seen traveling west on Coulter Street towards Knox Street, reports CBS Philly.
“Please just send her back home,” Freeland-Gaither’s father told the station. “Just let my daughter go. Whatever you want, whatever you’re asking for, I’ll give it to you.”
Police fear Freeland-Gaither may be in danger.
