Las Vegas police have released harrowing footage of a woman running to the door of a home for help, before she’s assaulted and dragged to a car by a man pursuing her.
The Las Vegas Metropolitan Police are now trying to identify the possible kidnapper and victim captured by a resident’s doorbell camera just after midnight on New Year’s Day.
The disturbing video released by police shows a woman running from a white sedan up to the door of a home in tears at 12:48 a.m.
But as she bangs on the door to try to get help, a man can be seen running up behind her, grabbing her and hurling her to the ground as she begs for him to “stop.”
The vicious attack continues as the man kicks her, sending her tumbling down a step before he says “why would you f---ing do that?”
After a brief struggle, the man instructs her to “get in the car” and then drags her off in the direction of the sedan.
“The current location and identities of the victim and suspect are unknown,” police said.
The woman in the video has been described by police as a white female approximately 20 to 30 years old with dark hair. She is seen wearing ripped blue jeans, a dark long sleeve shirt and dark boots, police said.
The suspect was described as a black male approximately 20 to 30 years old with short black hair. He was wearing a white shirt with dark horizontal stripes, dark pants and brown dress shoes.
Police believe the car seen in the video was a white Hyundai Sonata with a sunroof.
Anyone with information about the assault is urged to contact the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police at 702-828-3111 or provide information anonymously through Crime Stoppers. Police said anyone offering a tip leading to the arrest or indictment of the suspect could be eligible for a cash reward.
