On Saturday, 12/2/2017 at approximately 8:30 p.m. officers were called to the area of NE Lakewood Blvd and NE Anderson on the report of a possible abduction.
When officers arrived, they contacted a single witness who said that he observed a vehicle that had stopped in the middle of the street and a man was seen forcing a woman into the trunk of the vehicle.
The witness told police that the man forced the woman into the trunk and then left the area at a high rate of speed and was last seen heading south on Interstate 470 from NE Lakewood Blvd.
The witness described the car as a newer model, cream colored Chevrolet Malibu; the male was described as having a skinny build, approximately 6 feet tall wearing a red hat and a white shirt. The female was described as a white female with shoulder length brown hair and wearing a red blouse.
Officers canvassed the area looking for additional witnesses and surveillance footage to assist in gathering additional information. At this point we are unable to determine if the witness observed an abduction, a domestic disturbance between the man and woman or some other type of event.
Police are asking anyone who was in the area during that time that can offer additional information to call the LSPD Communications Unit at 816-969-7390.
