The suspect runs out and eventually pushes her back inside.
Police said it is unclear if the two know each other, but witnesses heard her scream things like, “I don’t want to get in” and “I hate you.”
Officers located the van at one point and tried to pull them over, but the driver sped off. They called off the pursuit out of concerns for public safety
“It’s really just determining the whereabouts of the vehicle and these individuals to make sure, A, that the female is safe, and if she is a victim of a crime, that we are able to support her in that. And then B, obviously finding the male subject who also fled recklessly and endangered the public,” said Det. Ian White with the Campbell Police Department.
