Suspect arrested after video shows man grabbing barista at Washington drive-thru window
Video footage captured the moment a man attempted to grab a barista at a drive-thru in Washington state in what authorities say was an attempted kidnapping.
The Auburn Police Department posted on Twitter the security footage of the attempted abduction that occurred early Monday morning, asking the public to help identify the suspect.
In the footage, the barista is seen attempting to hand the man in the pickup truck something when he reaches out for the barista’s arm. Police said the man attempted to drag the victim through the window “using a looped ziptie device.”
The barista was able to fight the man off, police said, before he drove off.
Police said in an update Tuesday morning they made an arrest in the case “after overwhelming support from the community.” Source
