(PHILADELPHIA) — A chilling video was released by authorities Monday showing a woman’s abduction in Philadelphia.

The missing woman — identified by police as 22-year-old Carlesha Freeland-Gaither — was abducted at 9:40 p.m. on Sunday in Germantown, Philadelphia affiliate 6ABC reported.

The three-minute video shows someone parking a gray or silver car. That’s when a man is seen getting out of the car, briefly going out of camera view.

Moments later, he can be seen on the surveillance video dragging Freeland-Gaither down the street. Although there was no audio with the video, police said the woman was yelling for help.

She is seen struggling with the man before the car speeds away. Police said the passenger side rear windows were busted open during the struggle.

Freeland-Gaither’s glasses and cellphone were found lying on the street where the abduction took place, the station reported.

Police are still looking for the abductor.
