The car was described by Yusuf Abramjee as a 2015 VW Polo with roof racks.
In the video, the woman can be seen locking her car and walking across the road when she sees the men climbing out of another Polo. She stops, and they proceed to grab her bag and shove her into the car.
It is unclear as to why the woman was abducted, with some social media users saying the men may have done this to gain access to her money at an ATM.
