Authorities have no idea who the victim or the suspects are, but the woman is described as a black female in her 20s or 30s. She was wearing dark pants and a white long-sleeved shirt. A witness who wants to remain anonymous told Local 10 news that the man who grabbed the woman hit her numerous times.
“She told me, ‘Call 911,'” the witness explained. “She told me, ‘He’s going to kill me.’ He was running like a beast into the shop, he took her (and) he hit her like 20 times.”
Spokeswoman for the Miami Police Department, Kiara Delva, said the suspect wrapped his arms around the woman’s neck as he pushed her toward the car.
