A 25-year-old woman selling flowers on a roadside in Wheaton was reported kidnapped yesterday afternoon, Montgomery County police said.

The car's passenger door opened and Hernandez-Hernandez was pulled inside, according to police. The car sped off, heading south on Connecticut Avenue.

Police described Hernandez-Hernandez as light-skinned, Hispanic, 5 feet 3 inches tall and 120 pounds, with long black hair and brown eyes. She was wearing a black-and-white striped T-shirt, black jeans, blue tennis shoes and a gray baseball hat with "Starter Equipment" printed in black.
