Yesterday evening an 18 year old woman was getting off work at the Wal-Mart located adjacent to Cowboy Stadium on Randol Mill. As she was walking to her car in the parking lot she was abducted during daylight hours. Through the course of the APD investigation they received a break in the case around 2 am. APD was able to track the suspect and victim to a residence in North Arlington near where Center and Mesquite Streets intersect. Patrol officers rescued the victim and she was immediately transported to a local hospital for evaluation. The suspect was taken into custody. Investigators continue to interview the female and canvass her work location and the residence where she was located for potential evidence.
It was a very long night for the APD. We are all very thankful that this potentially tragic incident ended successfully, and that the criminal has found his rightful place in society. My utmost respect goes to all the officers that participated in this incident. Well Done!
