    Police say that an incident caught on surveillance video -- initially believed to be a possible abduction -- was actually a domestic dispute.

    On Tuesday morning, Philadelphia Police released a still image of a man they were calling a suspect in the possible abduction of a woman in the Spring Garden section of the city, but by Thursday evening, a whole different scenerio unfolded.

    The man, police say, was actually involved in a domestic dispute with the woman he was seen putting in their car.

    A 26-year-old woman told police she heard a woman screaming for help on Monday around 4:15 p.m. on the 1900 block of Green Street. When the woman looked out her window, she says she saw a man following a woman who was walking away.

    The witness says the man had exited a black Chrysler Coupe with Pennsylvania tags and tried to grab the woman and pull her several times as the woman tried to get away. The witness says the man then picked the woman up and carried her to his vehicle as she struggled to escape.

    The witness says the man then placed the woman into the back of the car through the driver’s side and then drove off.
