The witnesses also shared with officers they heard the woman calling for help along with the car’s horn beeping during the apparent struggle.
CMPD shared images of the suspect’s car, which appears to be a grey 2016 Alfa Romeo Giulia. The front side of the car appears to have a black license plate bracket on the driver’s side.
