Police: Woman who appeared to be abducted says she wasn’t kidnapped
MEMPHIS, Tenn. —A witness called police after seeing what appeared to be an abduction.
The witness told police she saw a woman sitting on the sidewalk in the 2800 block of Old Austin Peay Highway at 2:23 p.m. Friday.
She said a gray four-door Chevy Malibu stopped in front of the woman, and a man got out and pulled the victim off the sidewalk and forced her into the car.
The witness said a second man, who was in the back of the car, held her by neck and kept her restrained until the first suspect got back into the driver’s seat.
Police asked the public for their help in locating the two men, but the woman went to a police station and told officers she had not in fact been kidnapped but rather just had an argument with her boyfriend.
Police confirmed the woman who came into the station was the same as the woman in the video, and they stopped their search for the two men.
