A woman in Hayward was found after she was reportedly kidnapped and assaulted.
Officers learned that a woman had been allegedly kidnapped from a residential neighborhood. Neighbors caught the incident on video and shared the camera footage with police.
The video showed the car’s license plate that the alleged kidnapper was driving.
Using the license-plate reading system, officers were able to locate the area the car was located in. Police found the vehicle parked in a driveway in a residential neighborhood.
When a man opened the door, police identified him as the same person who they believe kidnapped a woman an hour earlier. The woman was found inside the home and the man was taken into custody.
