Police are looking for a possible abduction suspect who allegedly assaulted a man inside a Wells Fargo bank, then forced him into a vehicle Tuesday evening.
Surveillance cameras captured the two men walking into the branch at 6611 Castor Ave. about 4:45 p.m.
While inside, the suspect – a 30-year-old man with dreadlocks – punched the other man in the chest, police said. He then allegedly pulled him from the bank and forced him inside a silver minivan.
The reported victim was heard saying, "I don't want to go with you," as the incident unfolded, police said. He has not been identified but is believed to be between the ages of 30 and 40.
Investigators on Wednesday released surveillance video of the pair and issued a public appeal for information regarding the suspect's identity and whereabouts.
He is about 5 feet 7, has a medium build, and was last seen wearing a brown puffy vest, gray hooded sweatshirt, and jeans, police said.
Anyone with information is asked to contact the Special Victims Unit at 215-685-3251 or 3252, or to submit an anonymous tip.
