Dallas police need more information about potential abduction Monday
Both suspects are described as Hispanic men, one of whom was wearing glasses.
Dallas police are attempting to identify and find a woman who appears to have been kidnapped early Monday morning. Detective are also trying to locate the two suspects who grabbed her off the street.
At the moment, police aren’t exactly sure what happened outside of the facts presented in a report filed Monday.
A little after 2 a.m. on Monday, a Hispanic woman in her mid-20s went to 2412 Ann Arbor Avenue — Top Flight Cigarettes & More, located just south of Cedar Crest Golf Course — and asked to use the phone. She wanted to call 911, she said, because her boyfriend had just stolen her car.
At that moment, police say, two Hispanic men drove up in a red Mercury Grand Marquis. Both men got out of the car and walked up to the woman.
One of the men tried to get her into the car; the police report says she refused. So he picked her up and “forced her into the rear seat of the vehicle,” according to a release Dallas police sent to media this afternoon.
According to the police report, a person who saw the abduction take place called 911. The witness also observed a handgun in the front seat.
All three of the people involved remain unidentified. For now, police aren’t sure this is a kidnapping: LaTonia Kelly, a public information officer for the Dallas Police Department, says there isn’t a missing-persons report for a Hispanic woman in her mid-20s.
This much officer do know about her, based on video taken by a witness: “She has shoulder length brown hair with blonde streaks and was wearing white knee length pants.”
Both suspects are described as Hispanic men, one of whom was wearing glasses. Police say they are to be considered armed and dangerous.
Police are asking anyone with information concerning the victim, suspects, or offense to call Detective E. Parker in the department’s CAPERS Robbery Unit at (214) 671-3630 or (214) 283-4836.
