“I just saw a speeding car coming by and police cars right behind it,” Mike Davis told CBS 2’s Lou Young.

Cops told CBS 2 that they were pursuing suspects who were allegedly involved in an attempted abduction in Cliffside Park.

Two people were already under arrest a third ran from the SUV and was believed to be hiding out in the neighborhood along Jones Road where Fort Lee and Leonia share a border.
