JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- The Jacksonville Sheriff's Office is responding to a reported abduction after a woman ran up to a home asking for help late Monday night.

Officers were called to the 12200 block of Woodbend Court off Atlantic and Kernan Boulevards around 11 p.m. Monday.

JSO investigators say a woman banged on the door of a home asking for help. When the homeowner answered, a man dragged the female away. The pair left in a white 4-door sedan with crome rims and tinted windows, according to investigators.

Police say witness accounts indicate that both the man and woman may have been drinking.

The woman is described as white with blonde hair and wearing white shorts and a black shirt. The man is said have been of Asian descent and wearing plaid shorts. Police were unable to give further descriptions.

At this point, police are not certain if this is an abduction case or some type of dispute. If you have any information about the location of either the man or woman involved in the incident, call JSO at 904-630-0500 or Crime Stoppers at 866-845-TIPS.

I might have acted differently, but I would also be wondering if it was a setup to get access to the residence.

So...the people that she rang their doorbell, after a person has come to their door asking for help, just sits there and lets the boyfriend/husband/pimp drag the girl off and stuff her in a car and only calls the police? Gee... thanks for your help! Yeah, yeah... I know... "It's NOT MY JOB!" and "They did the right thing...they called the police!" Freakin' SHEEPLE in this town who don't want to become involved but want to complain about how terrible the crime is. That young lady would have been sitting on my couch and her boyfriend had best not try to force his way in to get her. All you legal-beagles out there correct me if I am wrong, but I believe abduction and kidnapping are FELONIES and prevention of such justifies the use of deadly force. Deadly force is not standing there in your door and giving the perp the stink-eye!
