(NEWSER)– A woman whose violent abduction was captured on surveillance video in Philadelphia has been found alive and well in Maryland, reports the Philadelphia Inquirer.
Carlesha Freeland-Gaither, 22, is in good condition, and police say her assailant, identified as 37-year-old Delven Barnes, is in custody. NBC Philadelphia reports that police rescued Freeland-Gaither from a vehicle on the side of a road in Jessup, Md., yesterday after Barnes stepped out of it. Authorities had identified it as the vehicle used in the abduction, tracked it to Maryland, and had it under surveillance.
Philadelphia's police chief called Barnes a "vicious predator" and said he hoped he'd spend the rest of his life in jail.
