Person of Interest in Carlesha Abduction

The FBI has released new video of the person of interest in the abduction of 22-year-old nurse Carlesha Freeland-Gaither.

Philly abduction

The new video shows an unknown male shopping for items inside a convenience store in Maryland on Tuesday. He pays for the items using Carlesha's stolen ATM card.

The man is described as a black male, 25-30 years old, 5'-10" tall with a medium to navy build. He is seen wearing dark clothing and a black hoodie sweatshirt.

Carlesha was abducted from W. Coulter St in the Germantown section of north Philadelphia while walking home after visiting a Godson before 10 p.m. on Sunday.

Surveillance video shows the attacker dragging Carlesha down the street against her will and forcing her into a parked car, possibly a dark gray metallic 4-door Ford Taurus with a front tag that could be from Maryland.

A witness told police he heard Carlesha screaming for help as she struggled with her abductor. She reportedly kicked out 2 rear side windows in the car during the struggle. Her phone and glasses were found on the sidewalk next to shattered glass.

Carlesha's ATM card was used 8 hours later at a PNC bank ATM machine in Aberdeen, Maryland, about 70 miles from where she was abducted.

Carlesha's family said her former boyfriend from Maryland was stalking her.

When police showed the family images of the suspect, they said they did not recognize him.

"I did not recognize the person in the picture, but I know (the boyfriend) has a light complexion. The picture was not very clear, but - if I had to say - it's a possibility," said Carlesha's grandmother, Ana Mulero.

A $47,000 reward is being offered for information leading to the capture or conviction of the attacker.

      It would sting if a man ever denied our 2 year relationship in public. But yea she need to stop talking about it.

    • http://pearlswindow.com Carrington

      I need some advice Rosezays...

      A former friend and I stopped spoeaking a few years back. In short - I was a much better friend to this person than they were capable of being to me and the friendship, one-sided as it was, ended on a bad note.

      Now, anyone who truly knows me knows that I'm a good friend, but an ever better cut that b*tch off-er... I went above and beyond the call of duty in the name of friendship. Emotionally, fiscally, physically, etc.

      I've recently heard from a mutual friend that this person is very ill and they suggested I might want to pick up the phone and call. I entertained the idea of a phone call and intimated that I wouldn't completely dismiss the idea, but the more I've thought about it, the more I've come to realize that the idea of this call, or reaching out in any way isn't really rooted in any personal conviction of my own.

      My spirit tells me that the pious thing to do is to submit and reach out... but I'm not sure how much weight to place on my OWN spirit, and how much to place on the nudge coming from people who've TOLD me I should reach out. In my head, I have little desire to revisit that situation in any capacity and I'm wondering if there is something wrong with me that I'm simply not feeling it.

      What would you do?

      ============

      I wouldn't reach out. If you aren't feeling it, it's fake. If their seriously illness hasn't moved them to make amends then there is no need. As long as you don't harbor any hate toward this person, just keep on living life as you've been doing.

      @Carrington,

      First let me say that was a well written, non-punitive post. Highly insightful. Now, to answer your question....I am the type of peeson to look beyond one's faults and see the need. I was told once that the people who deserve your love the least are the ones that need it the most. You dont owe this person anything, per se. However, what do you stand to lose by brightening up this person's day? It doesn't have to be a sermon on the mount...just a quick touch base, I wish you well on your journey type encounter. Either way, you do what is best for you...hope this helps :kiss:

      This completely answered my question. I'm not calling. I agree. Why treat you like you're a saint when you ain't? You weren't $HIT to me when you were walkin, talkin, hummin and comin atcha... why should I feel obligated to treat you like all is forgiven when you're ill - when the reality is that all is NOT forgiven.

      IF I went to the funeral, it would be for her son because I genuinely love him as a person - but I'm 99% sure I still wouldn't go because I don't really do funerals.

      I've done this before...to Papa Butter. I washed my hands of him about 2-3 years before he passed away. He got sick and everyone was telling me I should go see him. I probably should have since his blood flows through my veins, but I just wasn't feeling it.

      Do I regret not seeing him? :no: It wouldn't have undone the years of mistreatment I received because he was trying to get back at Mama Butter. I felt like I just would've been faking the funk and seeing him because it was expected of me.

      Then again, my frontal lobe wasn't fully developed at the time- I was 15. Take my story with a grain of salt.

      Authorities said, reported.....
      Delvin Barnes had a dangerous criminal past. Also.Agents moved in quickly after receiving a tip from the ATF Office in Richmond, Virginia, which was investigating Barnes. They believed the man may have been the suspect after seeing surveillance photos in news reports, Philadelphia detectives said.
      Authorities began tracking his gray Ford Taurus through a GPS device placed inside the vehicle by the car dealership where it was purchased, detectives said. The GPS was installed because Barnes had poor credit, officials said.
      Agents honed in on his location, in a shopping center parking lot, and moved in to strike.
