Girl forced into car, driven to work

November 14, 1996|By Jill Hudson | Jill Hudson,SUN STAFF

A 16-year-old girl was forced into a car Tuesday afternoon while walking to work and driven to her job at The Mall in Columbia, but Howard County police said yesterday they are treating the case as a kidnapping.

The girl and her boyfriend were walking at the corner of Harpers Farm Road and Gloucester Road in Columbia's Harper's Choice village about 4: 30 p.m.

The boyfriend told police that the girl's former boyfriend and two other males drove up and offered the girl a ride to work, a police report said.

When the girl refused, the current boyfriend told police, she was forced into the car, which then sped off.

He called police, and while they were investigating, the girl was released unharmed at the mall in Town Center.

Although the girl and her boyfriend were able to give police information about the males in the car, no one has been charged in the incident.
