On February 1, 2018 at approximately 5:55 pm, Port Orange Police responded to the Spruce
Creek Shell gas station at 5784 Taylor Branch Rd, for a report of a possible armed kidnapping.
The initial investigation revealed the male and female arrived at the gas station together, but
the female removed several bags of items from the car and entered the store alone, while on
her cell phone arranging for an unknown person to come pick her up. The male she originally
arrived with drove away, but then returned a few minutes later and yelled for her to get into
the car. The female refused and remained inside the store, but the male entered the store and
forced the female outside. Once outside, the female began walking away from the male, but he
grabbed her again and began dragging her toward the vehicle while the female was actively
resisting him and screaming for him to let her go. The male forced her into the vehicle and
drove away from the scene with the female inside the car. A witness informed officers that the
male had a black semi-automatic pistol tucked into the front waistband of his pants. Port
Orange Detectives responded to the scene and are actively working this investigation.
The vehicle is described to be a white 2017 Toyota Camry bearing FL tag #CTI-U25. Still images
of the male and female involved in this incident are attached to this release on the following

Efforts to obtain a positive identification and their current location are still ongoing, however.
