Suspect in custody after possible kidnapping caught on surveillance video

Phoenix police were able to locate a vehicle and possible kidnapper near 67th Avenue and Lower Buckeye after Surveillance video showed a woman calling out for help before a man forced her into his car and took off.

We're told the woman is okay. The suspect is in custody. Their relationship has not been released.

After employees at the gas station saw the interaction, alarm bells went off in their heads and they called police.

The suspect got out of a silver Nissan 350Z and walked into the AM/PM convenience store near 75th Avenue and I-10. As he paid for his merchandise, he noticed something outside. It turns out a woman inside his car got out of the passenger side, appeared uneasy and walked toward the store.

The man walked out, and in the video, you can see through the window that appears to grab her and push her into the car. What's odd is that he shoves her back into the car through the driver's side door.

The car rolled backwards and then took off. Workers became concerned and called police.

One witness who saw it go down spoke to FOX 10.

"He go outside, and he push the girl, she's talking to the people outside saying help me, help me," said the witness.

She says the woman appeared to have been beaten and was asking for help.

"She saying only help me, and that's it, she had a scared face, she looked scared, and he's looking like c'mon and he pushed her," said the witness.

Employees at the gas station said the man did not look familiar.
