AUSTIN, Texas — A woman who was reportedly kidnapped near west campus at the University of Texas Wednesday night has been found safe.
The incident happened just after 8 p.m. around San Antonio Street and West 24th Street, UT police said. Police said the suspect forced a Hispanic woman into a car at gunpoint.
At that time, it was reported as a kidnapping but now Austin police said the family violence unit is investigating.
The woman was found before 4:30 a.m. Thursday morning but police can't say where.
Anyone with any information is asked to contact 911.
KVUE spoke to a man who lives near the area. He didn't see what happened but said he usually feels safe walking down that street.
“I walk like, at night a lot, especially like I did right now and I’ve never thought twice about my safety," Preston Bouwhuis said. "I would just hope that whoever got kidnapped ... ends up safe."
