The motion detector scanning for trouble outside of 1919 43rd Street, should have been on the inside.

"It's shocking really," said neighbor Jerald Burgess. Around 3:30pm a woman called police saying, "Help me. I've been abducted. Come get me before he kills me."

When police arrive they used a sledge hammer on the door. Inside they found a woman handcuffed to the bed. She says, since Monday, without food, and under physical attack. Three hours later a man was led out in handcuffs.

Neighbors were left in dismay. "That's kind of messed up is what it is," said Orlando Cruz. "It's a shock to me 'cause I see different females over there all the time," said Burgess.

Police say the woman was an acquaintance, but not romantically involved with the man. She refused medical treatment but was taken to the police station to give a statement.
