COEUR D'ALENE, Idaho - The Coeur d'Alene Police are investigating a report of a kidnapping that happened on Saturday October 18 between 2:30 to 3:15 pm.

Coeur d'Alene Police received the report of a kidnapping from a man who stated a female employee that works for him was abducted and battered The man said his female employee returned to work on that date at 3:15pm and he asked her why she was so late returning from lunch. She appeared frazzled and told him she was attacked in the parking lot of Lakewood Animal Hospital. She was at the animal hospital visiting her dogs. As she was leaving, she claimed a male suspect asked her for help with his dog. The dog was inside of a white van. She approached the van and climbed into the back to help him put a collar on the dog. The male then shoved her all the way into the van and shut the door. She was trapped in the back of the van with the pit bull mix dog.

The male got into the drivers seat and drove away. The driver's area was blocked from the back of the van. The victim could not see the male driver. The victim said he drove around for awhile and then stopped and opened the side door. The male suspect was partially undressed as he climbed into the back of the van. The victim said she struggled with him and he punched her a few times.

The victim said the dog started to jump and get excited. She let the dog off the leash and it distracted the suspect. The victim managed to get out of the van and run away.
