In this chilling footage released by Police, with the hope of catching her abductors and finding Carlesha, a man can be seen dragging the nurse along the pavement towards his awaiting car.

Carlesha kicks and screams as the man tries to wrestle her into the car, with her even breaking a window during the struggle.
