A woman was taken to a local hospital after Milwaukee Police said she jumped out of a car in Oak Creek about 6 a.m. Wednesday.
The incident was connected to a call MPD received for an abduction near 40th and Chambers about 2:30 a.m.
People who live near that intersection were surprised to hear why cops were there.
"I am glad it’s not a child, but it’s just sad because it shouldn’t be that way," said Samantha Winslow, who lives nearby.
Authorities said the 36-year-old woman jumped out of the car near Drexel and South 13th Street. The Milwaukee County Sheriff's Office took a person of interest into custody nearby.
