Week in Review

ALLENTOWN, Pa. -

It's time to take a look back at the stories making headlines this week in the 69 News week in review.

On Monday, Reading Police said a woman was kidnapped, then left in a park naked.

It happened at Walnut and Reed streets, when police said three Hispanic males pulled up to a 30 year old woman and demanded she get into a car.

Detectives said that's when they drove the victim to the area near Egleman's park, told her to get out of the car, then left her there naked.

Police believe they were trying to get back at the victim who they believe owed them money.

One suspect, Omar Otero was arrested, and police are searching for two others.

On Wednesday, 70 cows were killed in a massive fire at a family barn in Centre Township.

The two-story barn was leveled by the heavy flames, which sent a thick column of smoke into the air.

Only six of the Good family's cows made it out alive, but one may have to be euthanized.

Fire officials said the fire was an accident that was sparked by a tractor parked in the barn.
