A man struck a woman with an Audi in a McDonald's parking lot, pulled her inside the car and took off, police in Howard County, Maryland, say.

Police responded to the McDonald's in the 10000 block of Washington Boulevard in Laurel just before noon Wednesday.

Bystander video of the incident shows the woman get out of the Audi and walk toward the side of a truck.

The Audi briefly leaves before returning and driving directly at the victim, striking her and the truck, police said. The driver then gets out of the Audi and drags the woman into the car before fleeing.

Investigators believe the man and woman had a fight inside the vehicle, which led to the woman getting out of the car.

“It’s extremely disturbing to see somebody intentionally strike a woman with a vehicle,” Officer Seth Hoffman said.

Officers have searched the area, and checked local hospitals, but have been unable to find the Audi or the victim, who may need medical assistance.

Police said the suspect's car is a white 2018-2020 Audi Q3 or Q5, with a paper Maryland temporary tag. The vehicle sustained damage to the driver's side front quarter panel, headlight assembly and grill.

Police are asking anyone who has information or has seen the Audi to immediately contact investigators at 410-313-3700.
