UPDATE: Woman seen in alleged abduction video found safe; suspect arrested

Virginia police on Sunday arrested a man they say was seen in a surveillance video abducting a woman, forcing her into his car, and driving away.

Chesterfield County Police responded to a call at 7:45 p.m. Saturday about a “suspicious incident” captured by a homeowner’s surveillance camera 45 minutes earlier, WTVR reports.

The video appears to show a car pull up and stop across the street from the camera. A man gets out and appears to assault a woman before forcing her into his car and eventually driving away, as CrimeOnline previously reported.

The entire incident took a little more than four minutes.

In the video, a woman can be heard yelling “Stop! What the f*** is wrong with you? What the f**** is wrong with you?”

She later says repeatedly “Get the f**** off me” and then repeatedly cries out “Stop, stop, stop!”

“Get off of me! Get off of me!” the woman yells.

The woman continues to cry out those words in varying ways, at times her voice piercing what is otherwise a quiet street, at other times sounding muffled.

“Let me the f*** go!” she yells. “What the f*** is wrong with you? . . . I don’t know what you’re going to do to me.”

The woman was found safe, police said in an email sent shortly after noon on Sunday. Later, they said they’d arrested a suspect, 26-year-old Drequan Maurice Franklin.

Franklin was charged with abduction, domestic assault, possession of a schedule I or II drug, and possession of a firearm while in possession of a schedule I or II drug. He’s being held without bond.
