Police find woman safe after video showed her abduction in Miami

'He's going to kill me,' victim says before being forced into car

MIAMI – A woman whose abduction was caught on camera was found safe Sunday, Miami police said.

A surveillance camera recorded a man abducting the woman Friday night in Miami's Allapattah neighborhood. Police did not immediately release details about how the woman, who was not identified, was found or whether her abductor was in custody.

In the video, a man forces the woman inside a car, possibly a 2015 or newer model Nissan Altima. It had a paper tag with partial numbers either CFJ7 or CJF7, authorities said.

The incident occurred outside a tire store in the 2300 block of Northwest 36th Street. 

Kiara Delva, a spokeswoman for the Miami Police Department, said the video is "extremely disturbing."

"In the video, he has his arms wrapped around her neck as he forces her inside of the vehicle," Delva said. 

The woman is first seen in the video arriving on foot, followed by a white car.

A witness who asked not to be identified described what the woman was saying. 

"She told me, 'Call 911,'" the witness said. "She told me, 'He's going to kill me.'"

The witness said he saw the man beat her.

"He was running like a beast into the shop, he took her (and) he hit her like 20 times," the witness said.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the Miami Police Department at 305-603-6370 or Miami-Dade Crime Stoppers at 305-471-TIPS.
