Carlesha Freeland-Gaither was last seen around 9:40 p.m. Sunday, November 2, 2014 in the 100 block of West Coulter Street in the Germantown section of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Freeland-Gaither is described as a black female, five feet, three inches tall, 125 pounds with brown eyes.

Police in Philadelphia have released dramatic video of a suspect apparently abducting a woman in the city’s Germantown section Sunday night.
Twenty-two-year-old Carlesha Freeland-Gaither was last seen around 9:40 p.m. Sunday in the 100 block of West Coulter Street, reports CBS Philly. A witness said the woman was yelling for help as a man forced her into a dark-colored sedan.
Surveillance video released Monday by Philadelphia police shows a man driving down a street, parking his car and walking a short distance out of the camera’s view, back towards the direction from which he came. He’s then seen apparently chasing a woman across the street before grabbing her and forcing her down the block and into the car.
Freeland-Gaither tries to break free as the man works to open the rear driver’s side door on a 2000 model dark gray metallic Ford Taurus with missing inspection stickers. They both tumble onto the sidewalk, but the woman is unable to get away.
She’s thrown into the back of the car and the vehicle rocks back-and-forth for about 30 seconds before it pulls away. During that time, police said the woman broke out the both rear windows of the car trying to escape.
Another car can be seen driving up the street as the struggle takes place, but eventually backs out of the street.
A witness told NBC10 he walked past the woman shortly before hearing her scream. He then ran back to find her being forced into the sedan.
There is now a $15,000 reward offered in the search for Carlesha Freeland-Gaither.
The Fraternal Order of Police put an additional $5,000 Tuesday saying if an arrest is made today, they will pay up immediately.
Philadelphia Police have launched a full-scale investigation into the abduction on West Coulter Street in Germantown.
“Just let my daughter go. Whatever it takes, I don’t care. Just let her go,” father Carl Freeland said.
Authorities have found the woman abducted in Philadelphia alive in Maryland, and they have arrested a man in connection with the investigation, police and the FBI announced Wednesday evening.
FBI Philadelphia Special Agent in Charge Ed Hanko announced at 7 p.m. Wednesday that a tip to their Richmond office led investigators to identify an individual and his car, which they tracked to the 7200 block of Waterloo Road in Jessup.
The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives went to the location, which was a shopping center parking lot, and said agents immediately recognized the car as the one for which they’d been looking.
“It did have the right rear window kicked out of it, which was similar to the information that we received from the Philadelphia Police Department,” said ATF agent Timothy Jones.
“Tonight, the FBI and Philadelphia Police Department have great news that Carlesha Freeland has been rescued, her abductor has been arrested in Maryland,” Special Agent Hanko said.
The suspect is identified as 37-year-old Delvin Barnes.
Barnes is currently being held on a warrant based out of Charles City County, Virginia sheriff’s office for attempted capital murder, assault, malicious injury with acid, explosive, or fire.
Hanko says he will then be charged federally with crimes in Philadelphia
Anyone with information is asked to call the Philadelphia Police. Tipsters in Philadelphia should call 911, and those outside of the city should call 215-686-TIPS.

Donabedian, who was interviewed by two different deputies, did not allege any foul play, he said.
