Philly cops are still searching for two men who kidnapped a woman from Center City earlier this week, then released her later in Kensington.

The woman was working in a parking garage on the 700 block of Chestnut Street at about 3:30 p.m. Wednesday when police said two men approached her. After a brief conversation with one of the men, police said they forced her into a white Chrysler Town and Country minivan, then bound her hands and feet with duct tape. They also took her phone and debit card, police said.

The men released the woman in Kensington, on the 2400 block of Aramingo Avenue, about an hour later, police said.

The suspects, who were captured on surveillance video, are described as black males with thin to medium builds. One is between 20 and 30 years old, stands about 5'8" and was wearing a suit, black hat and sunglasses at the time. The other suspect has a beard and mustache.

To view the video, go to the department's YouTube channel.

Anyone with information can call police at 215-686-TIPS.
