Oregon Woman Kidnapping Caught on Ring

Kidnapping in Oregon

A doorbell camera captures a man kidnapping a woman in Hillsboro, Oregon, on Sunday evening. The woman who lived at the home that captured the video said she didn’t recognize either of them.

On Tuesday, they found the victim unharmed, and the Hillsboro police stated that the attack was not random because the suspect and victim knew each other. They arrested the man who took her and charged him with kidnapping but did not release his name or the victim’s name.

A Blink camera captured the incident, in which you can see a female yelling for help as a man was forcibly taking her to a pickup truck.

The woman didn’t put up much of a fight, and the last thing you ever want to do is let someone get you into their vehicle.

Ring and Blink cameras frequently miss the first part of the video because they do not buffer what’s being recorded, which is why you can’t see the woman until she’s already at the door. That’s one of the things that keeps those style cameras from being high on my list of home security options.
