Maumee woman giving out flyers says she s held in South Toledo house

A 47-year-old Maumee woman escaped abduction after being pulled inside a South Toledo home as she distributed flyers door to door, police said.

The woman was knocking on doors to pass out vacuum-cleaner brochures Wednesday afternoon when she was pulled into a home on Greenlawn Drive, near Heatherdowns Boulevard and South Byrne Road.

A middle-aged man who answered the door of a home in the 2200 block of Greenlawn grabbed her right wrist and told the victim, You re staying here. Police said he dragged her inside and locked the door, then told a woman in her 20s to watch the victim for him.

The victim escaped out a front window and fled.

She led police back to the home, but said she wasn t positive about the location. No arrests were made last night.
