CLEVELAND– Police launched a search for two suspects after a woman was reportedly kidnapped Tuesday morning.

Crews were called out to West 52nd Street and Field Avenue around 8:30 a.m.

Parts of Field Avenue were shut down as Cleveland police searched for the two suspected kidnappers. The scene was cleared as of noon. Multiple police crews, search dogs and a helicopter were called in for the search.

A woman in her 30s told police she was getting into her vehicle when the two suspects approached her, one of them with a gun.

She said they told her to get into her car and drive. The woman told police she was able to text her boss asking for help before they took away her phone. She then said she jumped out of the moving car and was able to run away.

That’s when she said the suspects ditched the car and ran.

Fox 8’s Jessica Dill spoke to the woman’s mother and asked how her daughter was doing.

“Scared, but she seems pretty level-headed and she’s trying to remember things and crying a lot,” Pam Sidelka said. “I think she’ll be OK, but hopefully more will become clear to her when she’s not so nervous and upset.”

Cleveland police are still searching for the alleged suspects and said the entire situation is under investigation.

The woman chose not to go to the hospital and said the men did not hurt her physically.
