Hillsborough police are investigating reports of a violent
argument between a man and a woman on Tuesday afternoon in which the woman
was allegedly punched and forced into an SUV.
Police sent out a countywide alert about the car -- a
dark-colored, older-model Nissan Pathfinder with scratches on the driver's
side -- following the incident, which occurred around 2 p.m. in the 200 block
of Bridge Road.
Witnesses told police that the man and woman were inside the
vehicle when an argument broke out. The woman exited the car, and the
argument allegedly grew violent.
Her companion, described by witnesses as a
stocky man who is Pacific Islander, Hispanic or black, punched the woman and
yelled at her to get back into the car, according to police.
A witness told police that the man then shoved the woman into the
SUV, which was last seen heading east on Stonehedge Road.
The woman is described as a white or Hispanic woman wearing a
purple shirt, with dark hair tied back in a ponytail.
Police on Wednesday were continuing to search for the victim, the suspect
and the SUV. A countywide alert has been issued for all law enforcement
agencies to be on the lookout.
Anyone with information on the case is asked to contact the
Hillsborough Police Department at (650) 375-7470.
