SOUTH BRUNSWICK, NJ (MIDDLESEX)–At 5:10 p.m. today, South Brunswick Police were able to track down the woman, man, and tractor-trailer cab involved in the Wednesday afternoon incident. In that incident, a witness said a female was in a white tractor-trailer cab yelling for help and bleeding. The tractor-trailer cab left and headed Route 130 south as the witness approached. Police disseminated a video of the incident Wednesday evening.
South Brunswick detectives received tips from around the country after releasing the video and images on social media. The break in the case came from Gabrielli Truck Sales located on Route 130 near where the incident took place. Company staff recovered video which allowed detectives to identify the truck as well as the female. Detectives searched locations in Middlesex and Union Counties looking for the truck. Detectives observed a male matching the witness description exit the truck in question and approached him. Detectives also contacted the woman seen in the video at the same location. Both the man and woman agreed to come to police headquarters. Detectives are speaking with both this evening.
Chief Raymond Hayducka said, “This was a great team effort, from the community providing tips to detectives tracking down leads. It was an exhaustive 26 hours, but we were able to locate the woman and make sure she was safe.” Detectives will continue to evaluate exactly what happened Wednesday afternoon in the truck. “This case exemplifies the power of so many coming together. I want to thank the witness who first reported the incident, the dozen of tips, and Gabrielli Truck Sales staff for getting involved to find this woman,” said Hayducka.
The South Brunswick Police have been assisted in the investigation by the FBI and the Middlesex County Prosecutors Office.
