The incident occurredSaturday, February 8, 2019, at 2345 NW 36 Street. The subject vehicle is being described as a possible 2015 or newer model white Nissan Altima.

A woman went into an Allapattah tire shop Friday night to get away from a man who eventually hauled her out and forced her into his Nissan.

Sunday night, police said detectives found the woman “safely in good condition.”

The woman’s abduction was captured on La Ceiba Tire Shop’s surveillance video. Miami police released the video Sunday and requested the public’s help in finding the woman.

The video showed a black female in her late 20s or early 30s in a long-sleeved shirt and dark pants enter La Ceiba Tire Shop at 2345 NW 36th St. As she passed two men talking near a dark car, she pointed toward a white Nissan Altima that immediately after, runs up close behind the dark car and stops suddenly enough for the car to bounce a bit.

Next on the video, a slender man is holding the same woman from behind as he marches her to the car. The right side of his head is shaved and at least a strip of hair that might be dreaded bisects his skull. Her right hand is next to her head. A witness told WPLG Channel 10 the man “hit her, like, 20 times.”

Cops did not release the woman’s name or say who abducted her.
