Moments later, a man is spotted running up to the woman, pushing her to the ground, and kicking her. He is then seen dragging the woman to the car.

“Why would you f**king do that?” he is heard asking before demanding the woman to get back in the car.

The whereabouts of the man and woman seen in Wednesday night’s surveillance footage remains unknown.

According to the report, police estimate the victim is in her 20s. They said she was wearing blue ripped jeans, a dark-colored long-sleeve shirt, and dark boots.

Police said they believe the kidnapping suspect is about the same age as the victim. At the time of the incident, he was wearing a white shirt with dark-colored horizontal stripes, dark-colored pants, and brown dress shoes.
