Police were investigating a domestic violence case after a man was captured on video attacking a woman before shoving her into an SUV against her will in Fontana on Wednesday.

Witnesses called 911 around 1:30 p.m. to report a woman who was being attacked and was possibly abducted in the area of Sierra and San Bernardino avenues, Fontana police said in a statement.

Police were earlier attempting to identify the man involved but said he turned himself in after seeing news coverage of the incident.

The man choked the woman before forcing her into the vehicle, witnesses told authorities. Cell phone video released by Fontana police shows the woman struggling with her attacker and trying to free herself as he strongarms her.

As the SUV sped away the victim could be seen hanging out the window screaming for help, according to witnesses.

Officers were on scene with both the perpetrator and victim Wednesday evening as domestic violence was being investigated.

Anyone with information about the incident can contact Fontana Police Detective Vestey at 909-350-7700.
