‘It worries me:’ MPD seeks victim, abductor caught on camera on south side

MILWAUKEE -- The Milwaukee Police Department needs your help identifying and locating a victim and abductor after an incident near 9th and Mitchell around 1:45 a.m. on Monday, April 8 -- caught on camera. Because the descriptions in this case are vague, police hope you'll take a close look at the video -- and give them a call if you can help.

The victim was described as a male or female, Hispanic, with a medium build and possibly black, curly hair.

The abductor was described as a male, unknown race, 20-30 years of age, with a medium build. He was last seen wearing dark clothing.

Darrin Cowser was taken aback by the footage captured by surveillance cameras.

"I stay like, six blocks away, and my kids play outside all the time, and it worries me. Should I let them play outside by themselves? I should be able to, but what I seen from that, it's weird. It's scary. I've never seen nothing like that before," said Cowser. "I hope nothing bad happened to 'em. Hopefully whatever happens, they can get out of this situation, because nobody deserves that."

The abductor's vehicle was described as a dark blue or black four-door SUV with tinted windows. Witnesses believe the vehicle could possibly be a 2003-2004 Pontiac Torrent or Nissan Style SUV with a luggage rack on the roof. The recovered vehicle depicted a dark SUV vehicle with rounded rear end/trunk lid.

"It's scary for the kids and the grown folks, not knowing what could happen anytime of any day," said a neighbor.
