York City Police are investigating the abduction of a woman from the CVS on South Richland Avenue. At around 9 a.m., a woman making a pharmaceutical delivery to the CVS was approached by two men, one holding a handgun, and was forced into her vehicle, a delivery van.

The van was seen traveling south on South Richland towards I-83. The victim was handcuffed by the men during the abduction. The two drove the van a short distance on I-83 South and pulled over to the side of the road near the Leader Heights exit.

The suspects covered the victim’s head and forced her into the back of the delivery truck before fleeing the vehicle. An undetermined amount of pharmaceuticals were taken from the delivery van and the men fled the scene in another vehicle, traveling southbound on I-83.

The first suspect is described as a 5’10” male, around 200 pounds, in his 50’s with medium complexion. He was wearing a blue hooded sweatshirt, blue jeans, a black jacket, navy blue knit hat, black gloves and large wire rimmed glasses.
