She had been dragged from one vehicle to another minutes before her bid for freedom.

Cops at Thames Valley Police are today calling for anyone with information to come forward urgently after the shocking incident.

And they said a man has been arrested in connection with the ordeal.

The victim was targeted sometime between 4.15pm and 4.35pm on Sunday, October 10.

“A woman was dragged from one vehicle to another outside the Co-op store in Whitley Wood Road,” a spokesperson from the force said.

“She was then driven away and managed to get out of the vehicle outside Sainsbury’s in Shinfield Road, a mile away.

“The woman, who is aged in her 40s, was uninjured.

“A man, aged 37 and of Plymouth, has been arrested on suspicion of kidnap.

“He was released on bail until November 7.”

Investigating officer Detective Constable Benjamin Rimmer said: “I realise this will be a distressing incident for people in the local area.

“We believe this was an isolated incident and there is no wider risk to the public.

“To help with the investigation we would like to hear from anyone who saw anything suspicious in the area around this time.

“We would also like to speak to anyone who either witnessed or has dash-cam footage in which a car was driving dangerously or had the passenger door open.

“If you have any information which you think could help with this investigation, please contact the Thames Valley Police non-emergency number 101 or make a report online using the reference number 43210456937.

“You can also make a report 100 per cent anonymously by contacting the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.”
