DETROIT - Law enforcement is investigating the discovery of a burned-out SUV found in Detroit that may have been driven by a kidnapping suspect who took his ex-girlfriend from her workplace Tuesday afternoon.
Wednesday morning, police commissioner Bill Dwyer said the suspect is armed and dangerous and could be a threat to anyone in contact with him.
Jackson was found safe around 10:30 p.m. Tuesday evening after Brown dragged her from her job at Subway on 9 Mile Road.
"It's very fortunate for the victim that she was able to get out of there," said Dwyer. "But she had a friend of both the suspect and herself kind of intercede and that's how she was released safely."
Brown was recently sentenced for imprisoning another woman.
Police had also put out a warrant for his arrest after he cut the tether from his leg.
Officers initially observed Brown's vehicle - a burgundy-colored SUV - and made chase Tuesday afternoon before losing him near I-75 and Seven Mile.
Then early Wednesday morning, Detroit police found the remains of an SUV that had been torched and abandoned in a neighborhood near 8 Mile and I-75. They have notified Warren police but aren't sure if it's the same vehicle.
