OAKLAND (KRON) — Oakland police have released a sketch of the person they think is responsible for the kidnapping a 19-year-old woman.
The woman was walking on the 200 block of 17th street around 8:30 p.m. last Wednesday when the suspect appeared from between two parked cars and approached her. The suspect wrapped both arms around the victim and told the victim he had a gun. The man then dragged her down the sidewalk.
They fell to the ground and the victim ran away. The suspect fled the scene before police arrived.
