Boulder police investigate kidnapping in South Boulder, victim is safe

Boulder police are investigating a kidnapping that occurred shortly before 10 p.m., on Nov. 28, at the intersection of 28th and Baseline. A woman was stopped at the intersection when a man entered her vehicle through the passenger side door and told her to drive towards the highway. The woman started driving and exited at the southbound Table Mesa off-ramp where she was able to flag down a jogger who removed the suspect from her vehicle. The woman drove away, and a short time later called police.
