April 1, 2019

MILWAUKEE Milwaukee police say a woman who was abducted after running topless into a business has been found.

Authorities say the suspect was arrested about 11 a.m. Saturday after police received a tip. Police said late Saturday that the victim has been located and is safe and unharmed.

Police say the woman ran into the store about 2:30 a.m. Saturday and the suspect followed her inside, at which time she ran behind a counter and asked an employee to call 911. Once outside the store, the suspect grabbed her, took her to his vehicle and drove off.

The suspect is in custody, and the investigation continues. Police expect to present criminal charges to the district attorney's office in the coming days.
