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.
