BOULDER, Colo. – Police are investigating after woman said she was kidnapped by a man in south Boulder Wednesday evening.

The kidnapping happened shortly before 10 p.m. at the intersection of 28th and Baseline, according to a press release from the Boulder Police Department.

The victim in the kidnapping told police she was stopped at the intersection when a man got inside her car through the passenger side door and told her to drive towards the highway.

The woman started driving and exited at the southbound Table Mesa off-ramp where she was able to flag down a jogger who removed the suspect from her vehicle, police said.

The woman then drove away and called police a short time later.

The suspect is described as a Hispanic man in his 30’s, measuring approximately 6-feet tall and weighing approximately 250 pounds. The woman said he had a dark-colored seven- or eight-inch ponytail down his back. She said he was wearing a dark hoodie with thin white horizontal stripes and was smoking marijuana.

Police ask that the jogger who helped the woman, as well as anyone who may have information about this case, come forward by contacting Detective Heather Frey at 303-441-3369.

Those who have information but wish to remain anonymous may contact the Northern Colorado Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477). Tips may also be submitted through the Crime Stoppers website at crimeshurt.com.
