The Dothan Police Department is investigating what it believes may have been an abduction that started as a domestic dispute. Details are limited, but officials say the victim is now safe.
Authorities say the dispute started outside the city limits. The initial reports indicate the suspect struck a vehicle at the intersection of Hodgeville Road and West Inez Road in which the victim and two other people were riding.
The victim's vehicle hit a tree as a result of the crash. Investigators say the suspect then forcibly removed the victim from their vehicle before fleeing the scene in another vehicle.
Police officers found the suspect and the victim a short time later on South Brannon Strand Road.
