A Florida woman is safe but her suspected kidnapper is still on the run days after surveillance cameras reportedly caught him forcing her out of an auto shop and into his car on Friday night.
On Sunday, the Miami Police Department tweeted Sunday that the abducted victim involved in Friday’s incident at La Ceiba Tire Shop was “safely” located and is in good condition. Further details weren’t made available, though police mentioned that their investigation is ongoing.
Video showed the unnamed woman, who is in her 20s or 30s, running into the auto shop and begging bystanders for help before the suspect pushed her into a late model white Nissan Altima and drove off. The Nissan Altima reportedly had a partial license tag of CFJ7” or “CFF7.”
A witness previously told WPLG that the suspect beat the victim, came into the shop to retrieve her, and struck her approximately 20 times.
“She told me, ‘Call 911,'” they said, recalling the woman’s pleas for help. “She told me, ‘He’s going to kill me.'”
This is an ongoing investigation. Anyone with information regarding Friday evening’s incident at La Ceiba Tire Shop can call the Miami Police Department at 305-603-6370 or Miami-Dade Crime Stoppers at 305-471-TIPS.
UPDATE: The abducted female has been located safely in good condition. Detectives are following up on the investigation. https://t.co/mXDh3CoJXx
