Detectives believe a woman was abducted in it miles away in broad daylight Saturday from a Walmart parking lot in Northeast Philadelphia.
“It’s crazy because I ain’t think nothing like that could ever happen,” said Earl Walker.
Police say a 43-year-old woman was approached by two men wearing construction vests.
Investigators say they then held her at gunpoint and drove her from the Walmart on Roosevelt Boulevard to Cheltenham Avenue and Saul Street in Oxford Circle.

“My wife be out here, grandson and all. That’s just to me, it’s crazy,” said Earl Walker.
