CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Detectives are asking for the public’s help in finding the victim and suspect of a violent kidnapping in east Charlotte after it was all caught on video.
Police say around 7:20 a.m. officers responded to a home on Driftwood Drive to conduct a welfare check.
Upon arrival, officers spoke with a resident of the home who showed them footage of the attack captured from their video doorbell.
Police say the footage shows a violent encounter between two individuals around 3 a.m. on December 15th.
A victim can be seen attempting to flee from the suspect on foot while seeking help, according to a news release.
