Police: Woman Dragged, Assaulted Near LIRR’s Ronkonkoma Station Is Safe
RONKONKOMA, N.Y. (CBSNewYork) — A woman caught on surveillance video apparently being beaten and abducted last week at the Ronkonkoma Long Island Rail Road station has come forward and is safe, police said.
The March 4 incident, which was caught on surveillance video from “Village Taxi,” shows a man knocking down a woman, who had just exited a LIRR train.
The two, who appear to know each other, exchanged words inside the 24-hour car service business before he allegedly forced the woman to leave.
Once outside, the suspect apparently knocked the woman down and dragged her out of view of the surveillance camera.
Witnesses told authorities that the man also placed the victim over his shoulder and threw her into the back of a light silver 4-door Nissan Altima — either late 1990′s or early 2000′s model.
MTA police did not say if anyone has been arrested.
