SAN FRANCISCO (CBS SF) – A woman was kidnapped in San Francisco’s South of Market neighborhood on Tuesday afternoon, a police spokesman said Wednesday.

The kidnapping was reported at 3:42 p.m. Tuesday at the intersection of Mission and 10th streets.

The 20-year-old victim and another person were walking when the suspect drove up behind them, pulled the victim into his vehicle and drove away west on Mission Street, police said.

Police spokesman Sgt. Daryl Fong said police are treating the case as an isolated incident and said “it doesn’t appear to be a public safety issue.”

Fong said the suspect and victim “have some sort of relationship” and that the victim was still missing as of Wednesday morning.

No other details about the case were being released, he said.

Anyone with information about the kidnapping is encouraged to call the Police Department’s anonymous tip line at (415) 575-4444 or send a tip by text message to TIP411.

    The kidnapping “doesn’t appear to be a public safety issue”??????

    So what the hell does THAT mean – that the public-at-large is not subject to kidnapping en masse? That the woman who IS the victim of the kidnapping doesn’t matter? That the police are not going to bother looking for her?

    How about a description of the CAR? The kidnapper?

    So that maybe – just maybe – the perp can be caught, charged & prosecuted. Oh yeah – and MAYBE the kidnapped woman can be rescued BEFORE she’s a corpse!

    PS Identification and picture of the KIDNAP VICTIM would be helpful IF we-the-public can help find her.

    San Fransicko strikes again. Would this happen if potential victims were allowed to conceal carry hand guns? Would these incidents cease if the perp thought his head might be turned into a canoe? I guess we will never know, this is San Fransicko after all. Anti-everything even public safety issues.

      What if the woman DID have a hand gun and tried to shoot the guy, missed him and hit someone else (or worse, many people) who had nothing to do with the situation? Very big possibility. What if it was a little kid, or someone you knew. Stay in the mountains so the rest of us can evolve properly.

        Jane, your argument is silly and has been used by liberals forever; isn’t it time for some new material? Your use of ridicule from the Alinsky handbook is dead on. You must be proud. I wish you would head to the mountains.
