The desperate search is on for a woman believed to have been dragged by her hair at gunpoint from a stranger’s porch in an abduction caught on camera.
The woman could be seen looking over her shoulder while repeatedly ringing the doorbell of a home in Richmond Hill at 2:50 a.m. Thursday, video released by the York Regional Police in Canada showed.
But no one had come to the door by the time an unidentified man followed the woman onto the porch with what police said appeared to be a gun in his hand.
“Stop!” the woman shouts before the man appears to corner her on a part of the porch out of view from the camera.
The suspect can be heard telling the woman “You gonna stop?” and “you should slam one in your head right now.”
“Get in the f***ing car,” the man says as he appears to drag the woman by her hair off of the porch and toward the vehicle.
“I think I’m gonna die,” the woman says.
“Good,” the man replies, saying: “Get in the f***ing car. I’m gonna kill you.”
“No!” the woman says before being forced into the vehicle.
The suspect is described as having short hair and driving a newer model compact SUV.
“Investigators are appealing to anyone who may know the suspect or the victim to contact police immediately with any information,” the York Regional Police said in a statement. “Investigators are also appealing to any nearby businesses or residences that may have video surveillance, or any drivers who may have been in the area at the time with dashcam footage to please come forward.”
The alleged abduction took place near High Tech Road and Silver Linden Drive in Richmond Hill, about 23.5 miles north of Toronto.
