Teen girl saved after being kidnapped at BART station

A teenage girl was rescued and a man was arrested early Wednesday morning after an alleged kidnapping in San Francisco the night before, police said.

Witnesses at the San Francisco Powell Street Station told police they saw the girl being forcibly removed from the station and pulled into a car on Tuesday at 8 p.m. by a man who was later identified as 37-year-old Jamall Blue, BART police alleged. 

Surveillance video showed the man, believed to be Blue, put the 17-year-old into the car, something that witnesses also confirmed. 

Shortly after the kidnapping, the girl's parents filed a missing persons report. 

BART police started looking for the car and found it, along with Blue, about 3 a.m. Wednesday.

It's unknown if Blue and the teen had known each other previously. 

BART Police Chief Kevin Franklin said it doesn't appear the kidnapping was random and that there's some tie between the victim and suspect.

SFPD did not say where Blue and the car were found, and Franklin would also not verify the information.

It's unclear if the girl was found in the car with Blue, but police did confirm she was found early Wednesday morning and referred to the appropriate juvenile services. She has since been reunited with her family.
