Breaking News

CHESTERFIELD COUNTY, Va. (WRIC) — Authorities in Chesterfield say a woman has been located, unharmed, after she appeared to be abducted from a Target in Chesterfield Friday night.

Chesterfield police say they were contacted this morning with information confirming the woman’s identity, and that she is safe and unharmed.

On August 20, the Chesterfield County Police Department responded to the Target on 201 Perimeter Drive in Midlothian after reports of a suspicious incident. Police reviewed surveillance video, which shows a woman walk up to a white Mazda in the parking lot in front of the store. A person then gets out of the back, grabs the woman and puts her in the back of the car. That car is then seen leaving the area.

Chesterfield police now say the incident was a “misunderstanding,” and no abduction occurred.
