LAPD Investigating Possible Kidnapping in Sylmar

Police sought the public's help Monday in identifying a woman who may have been kidnapped in Sylmar.

Witnesses reported hearing a woman screaming for help about 11 p.m. Sunday at a gas station in the area of Foothill Boulevard and Hubbard Street, according to the Los Angeles Police Department.

Witnesses said they looked to see what was happening and found the woman with her hands and legs bound inside a dark-colored SUV with dark-tinted windows and damage to its driver's side mirror, police said.

Authorities were not able to gather the SUV's license plate number from the gas station surveillance video.

The suspects were described as two Hispanic males and one Hispanic female, police said.

The SUV was last seen headed east on the Foothill (210) Freeway from Hubbard Street, with all three suspects and the bound woman inside, witnesses told the LAPD.

Anyone with information that could assist police in their investigation was urged to call the LAPD's Mission Station at 818-838-9800.

Anonymous tips can be submitted through Crime Stoppers by calling 800-222-TIPS.
