Metro Police are investigating the kidnapping of a woman early Wednesday in a south valley neighborhood, releasing footage that was captured on the home surveillance video of the residence the victim was running towards while attempting to escape.

The video shows the kidnapping victim rushing toward the house as she was pursued by her male captor, who kicked her and forcefully pushed her into a white sedan.

The incident occurred at 12:48 a.m. in a neighborhood near Warm Springs Road and the 215 Beltway, police said.

Police said the woman ran from the car toward a house where she began to “bang on the door and scream for help.”

The woman was crying when she made it to the front porch, and the man was seen running after her. She pleaded: “Stop, stop, stop! Please!”

The man responded: “You always (expletive) do that!” Before he pushed her to the ground and kicked her on the torso, the video shows.

“Get in the car,” he was heard saying. That’s when he picked her up and grabbed her by the hair, hauling her away.

“The location and identities of the victim and suspect are unknown,” police said Wednesday night. It wasn’t clear whose home the incident occurred at or what time it was reported.

Police described the victim as a white woman in her 20s. She has dark hair and wore blue, ripped jeans, a dark-colored long-sleeve shirt and dark boots.

The suspect was described as a black man in his 20s with short, black hair. He wore a shirt with dark-colored horizontal stripes, dark-colored pants and brown-colored dress shoes, police said.

They were in a white sedan believed to be a Hyundai Sonata with a sunroof, police said. Detectives couldn’t get information on the license plate number.

Anyone with any information is asked to call Metro at 702-828-3111. To remain anonymous, contact Crime Stoppers at 702-385- 5555, or crimestoppersofnv.com.
