PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – The hunt is on for two men who abducted a woman from a Walmart in Northeast Philadelphia.

The suspects were wearing easily identifiable clothing.

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.

It was there detectives say the two men took her bank card and ran away.

The woman wasn’t hurt.

One mother we spoke with at that same Walmart says she’s scared.

“I was kind of shocked yesterday because I’m coming here with kids,” said a female shopper.

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

Earl Walker lives around the corner.

“That’s ridiculous, I mean look at the parking lot people are in here all of the time so ain’t no way in the world nobody ain’t seen nothing,” said Walker.

Walmart’s building has multiple cameras but it’s unclear if any of them captured the abduction.

“They need to catch them and lock me up. They don’t need to get out,” said Walker.
