PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — Philadelphia police are investigating the possible abduction of a woman that was caught on tape.

The incident happened at about 4:15 p.m. Monday in the 1900 block of Green Street in the city’s Spring Garden section.

A witness called 911 and told police she heard a female screaming for help and looked out the window.

The witness then saw a black male attempt to grab an unidentified black female and pull her several times. The male then picked the female up and carried her to his car that was parked at 19th and Green Streets.

The witness told police the female was struggling with the male and attempting to get away.

The male then placed the female into the back of his car through the driver’s side and was last seen driving eastbound on Green Street from 19th Street.

The incident was caught on surveillance tape.

The offender is described as a bald black male wearing a dark-colored jacket. He was driving a black Chrysler CP with possible partial Pennsylvania tag “JFM.”

Anyone with information is urged to call 215-686-3093/3094 or 911.
