NYPD questioning man in alleged abduction

Posted: Updated:

NEW YORK (AP) - Police are questioning a man they say abducted a woman from her home in Queens, leaving their two young children behind.

The NYPD says the incident unfolded at 5:40 a.m. Friday when the man went to the woman's house on 16th Road.

They say he grabbed her, dragged her to her car and forced her to drive.

A 911 caller alerted police and a patrol car spotted the vehicle a short time later.

Police say the car was pulled over and the man was taken into custody.

No charges were immediately filed.

Police say the woman and the children, ages 8 and 4, were not harmed.

    A Brooklyn woman who is seven months pregnant released photos that she said show an NYPD officer putting her in a choke hold as she was being arrested for grilling on the sidewalk outside her home.  Rosean Miller was arrested for disorderly conduct on Saturday and her husband Moses was arrested for obstructing government business, a criminal charge. It's the latest in a string of reported choke holds by police officers. The move is not allowed under NYPD policy.

    Making New York City more energy efficient

    Making New York City more energy efficient

    More than half the population of New York City rides public transportation to work. No other metropolis in this country even approaches that percentage or the MTA's total number of riders. For that reason, New York likely ranks as the most energy-efficient city in the nation. But what would it take to make the city even more energy-efficient or even self-sufficient?

    NYC woman finds wedding dress lost after Sandy

    When a New York City dry cleaners was destroyed by Superstorm Sandy, the only item to survive was Nicole Pagliaro's wedding dress. But her name was lost to owner Hector Pacheco, who reopened after more than a year and in a new location. Pagliaro had brought the dress to him after her 2012 wedding. When the storm swamped and shuttered the Staten Island store, she assumed it was lost. But two weeks ago, she took a different route to work and spotted it in the window.
