Boulder police have found the owner of a van that witnesses believed was involved in a possible abduction Tuesday night and have determined that no crime was committed, according to a news release.
At about 10 p.m. Tuesday, Boulder police received two calls from witnesses who said they saw four or five people in a white utility van apparently forcing a woman into the vehicle at the Circle K convenience store near 15th Street and Canyon Boulevard.
Police never received a missing person report but on Wednesday released descriptions of several people believed to have been involved in the suspicious incident.
They also described the van and gave a partial license plate of 868-GY.
According to Sgt. Thomas Trujillo, Circle K's corporate offices helped identify the people involved. Police spoke with the driver and another man identified by witnesses as an occupant in the van and concluded that no crime occurred, Trujillo said.
Although one witness told a dispatcher that a gun may have been involved, Trujillo said that was not the case.
"It was a couple of guys pretty much horse-playing around," Trujillo said. "They didn't realize anyone had seen them. There was no criminal intent. No crime was committed."
Police consider the matter closed.
