Around 9.25am (June 14) the victim, who was wearing black tracksuit pants and a red top, was waiting at a bus stop in Theodore. A vehicle described as an older model, dark green-coloured Holden or Ford sedan stopped alongside her, a man got out and the victim was forced into the back seat. She was driven for a short time to a house, taken inside but managed to escape.
The house is described as a single story brick home with a wooden front door and windows either side. One of the windows had a slightly torn curtain believed to be yellow in colour. It has a concrete driveway down the left side of the block which leads to a brown wooden gate leading to the backyard.
