• Police: Man stalked victim for weeks before kidnapping

    Updated:

    CALIFORNIA - A man caught on camera kidnapping a woman in California is now in custody.

    The chilling surveillance video shows the suspect, later identified as 29-year-old Jose Eduardo Gaxiola Caro, dragging the victim out of the convenice store where she worked.

    Police say Caro forced the woman into a car and drove off. Hours later, she managed to escape.

    The suspect had stalked the victim for weeks, police say. He was caught after a police chase Thursday night.

    A bystander in the surveillance video is being criticized. As the suspect drags the woman out of the store, they go right past a postal carrier, who actually trips over the victim.

    Instead of noticing that something is wrong, the postal carrier appears to drop off the mail and walk out.
