Security footage obtained by ABC6, shows the employee running after a white Dodge Durango as it pulls away; but it brakes and a rear door opens, and one occupant flees, before the waitress gets dragged inside.
"They pulled her into the vehicle and assaulted her inside the vehicle," said Washington Township Police Chief Patrick Gurcsik.
He said the Durango drive north on Route 42 with the waitress inside, before it pulled a U-Turn and pushed her out of the vehicle, leaving her on the side of the highway.
She was able to run back to the restaurant where she raised the alarm. She was later taken to hospital, suffering from bruises and a possible concussion. She was treated for her injuries and released.
