A woman believes she escaped abduction in the Town of Brookfield over the weekend while trying to use a bathroom at a McDonald's.

The woman, who wanted to only be identified as Sylvia, said it happened while she was at the McDonald's at 18695 W. Bluemound Road Saturday around 7:45 p.m.

Sylvia said the man approached as she was making her way through the first set of doors into McDonald's.

She was trying to walk through the second set that would take her into the restaurant when the man held his arm across the door.

"He said, 'I need you to go to the white car,'" said Sylvia.

She said he repeatedly tried to get her to leave, speaking calmly but forcefully.

"Second time it was, 'Go to the white car.' Third time was, 'Go to the white car,'" said Sylvia. "I thought at first that there something was wrong."

Sylvia then looked back at the only car the parking lot, which was a white car. She had noticed a woman was sitting the driver's seat with the engine running.

Sylvia said that's when a feeling of dread came over her. She screamed no and ran into the restaurant yelling for workers to dial 911. The man took off after the manager came out, but Sylvia wants people to be aware of how easily she was almost lured away.

"There was no weapon, there was no gun, he did not grab me. He used those words," said Sylvia. "His weapon was his words"

She believes had she left the safety of the restaurant the two people would have gotten her in their car.

"My guess is they were two desperate people and they could have pawned me off and sold me. I don't know," said Sylvia.

The Town of Brookfield says this is currently an open investigation. They are looking for more information. You can call (262) 796-3798 if you know anything.
