SOUTH BRUNSWICK, NJ (PIX11) — Police on Thursday located the man, woman and tractor-trailer cab sought after someone reported the woman was bleeding and calling for help in New Jersey on Wednesday, officials said.
Officers, unsure exactly what happened, questioned the man and woman on Thursday evening. Many feared the woman may have been abducted, but she told police she fell and hit her head as the truck was making a U turn.
Both the man and woman are cooperating with police. Officials believe the injury to the woman was accidental. No charges will be filed.
“I just want to let everyone know that we reached a positive end. It was community effort, and I want to thank everyone for the calls and support that helped us get to this point,” said South Bunswick Police Det. Sgt. Tim Hoover.
Just hours earlier, before they were able to talk to the pair, police weren’t sure what had happened.
“We still have a lot of work to do to get to the bottom of what happened,” a police official said. “The important thing is that we got her home safe.”
They were found around 5:10 p.m. after a community tip. Police were inundated with calls after reports that the woman was bloody and calling for help on Wednesday. A witness had reported seeing them on Route 130 near Dayton Toyota. The white tractor-trailer cab then headed south on Route 130 and got off at the Ridge Road exit, according to police.
“The individual that was driving the car and the female that was in distress do know each other, this was not a stranger event,” police said.
