Woman Abducted In Center City, Robbed And Dropped In Port Richmond
By Elizabeth Hur
PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – Philadelphia police are investigating a report of an abduction from Center City Wednesday night. A woman claims she was forced into a minivan then later dumped in Kensington.
Police say the 32-year-old victim is a parking attendant at the 5 Star Parking Garage in the 700 block of Chestnut Street.
Around 7:30 Wednesday evening, she told police two black men driving a newer model white minivan pulled up to her window. According to sources, the victim told police the men claimed to have a broken window and needed her help. So she says she stepped out to investigate and that’s when the men forced her into the back of the minivan and taped her hands and feet.
The victim says the men then drove her to Kensington near Castor and Aramingo Avenues and dropped her off after taking her cell phone and debit card.
Police say they will review surveillance video from the garage to see what, if anything, was caught on tape.
The investigation is continuing.
