Brick police are looking for two kidnappers who allegedly assaulted a woman and flashed a box cutter at her.
On January 10, 2014 at approximately 10 a.m., police responded to a residence on Georgia Drive after receiving a report on a kidnapping.
The adult victim, a resident of Essex Drive, was walking through the Lake Riviera section of Brick when she was approached by a white work van with tinted windows, occupied by two white men, police said.
The passenger of the van exited the vehicle, approached the victim, and forced the victim into the van. Once inside the van, the victim stated that she was struck several times in the torso with what was described as a “piece of steel,” police said.
The subject then produced a box cutter.
Shortly thereafter, the victim was able to escape the van as it travelled slowly north on Georgia Drive. The victim then ran to a nearby residence, knocked on the door, and asked the resident to contact police, police said.
The victim described the suspect that pulled her into the van as a white male, wearing a blue navy sweatshirt and black pants.
The driver was described as a white male, wearing a black hooded sweatshirt, and possibly having blonde hair.
The investigation is being conducted by Detective James Burgess of the Brick Township Police Detective Bureau.
Anyone who believes that they may have seen this vehicle or anything related to this incident is asked to contact Detective Burgess at 732-262-1115. They may also contact the Brick Township Police Department directly at 732-262-1100.
