The Las Vegas police arrested a 23-year-old man after he was seen on the doorbell camera kidnapping and assaulting a woman.
A resident in a neighborhood south of Downtown Las Vegas informed the incident to police after their doorbell camera filmed the event shortly after midnight on New Year’s Eve.
In the video, a woman is viewed running up to the house, where she knocks on the door and cries for help.
In the background, a man, who is identified by police as Darnell Rodgers, jumps out of a white sedan and races up to the woman. The 23-year-old Rodgers grabs the woman and forces her to the ground, then kicks her in the abdomen, sending her tumbling down the steps.
“Why would you do that?” he yells at her.
Police stated that the incident seems to be a domestic violence situation.
He then draws the woman to her feet, yelling at her to “get in the car” and stating at her before he pulls her down the walkway into the car.
The full video, which contains force and obscene language, was posted to YouTube by Las Vegas police.
Rodgers was taken into custody on Thursday morning for kidnapping and domestic battery charges. He is at the Clark County jail.
Police said that the identity of the victim was not released, but she was discovered and is safe.
