The co-worker witnessed the assault and the car flee with the victim inside. EPD said the car fled to the Tippecanoe and Shamrock Dr. intersection before allowing the victim out of the car.

"The victim and her boyfriend had gotten into a verbal argument, the victim tried to get away knowing that the argument was escalating," said Sgt. Anna Gray. "the suspect kind of grabbed her and pulled her back into the car so that she couldn't get away and then he drove off."

According to the initial police report, the suspect pulled out a handgun to get the victim back into the car.

When EPD got to the scene, the victim was back at the Pony. Where she was safe with minor injuries.

After further speaking to the victim, EPD does know who the suspect is. No charges have been pressed against him.
