Illinois police and the FBI are searching for a visibly injured woman who told a local store clerk she had been abducted before she was dragged from the store and into a waiting vehicle, according to a report.
The woman, who is Black, approached a cashier inside the AutoZone on East Sibley Boulevard in Dolton, Illinois, at about 5 p.m. Sunday, and said a man she had met on a cell phone app was holding her against her will, local affiliate FOX 32 Chicago reported. At the time, she reportedly had a bloodied bandage on her right hand and bruises covering her arms and neck.
But within moments, a man entered the store and said “that was enough” as he forced the woman out of the store and into a vehicle before driving away, the report states.
