    Police say a woman caught on surveillance video apparently being beaten and abducted last week at an LIRR station has come forward and is safe.

    The video showed the woman being punched in the torso by a man who then follows her into the Ronkonkoma train station and drags her out. At one point he is seen shoving her and grabbing her by the hair.

    Witnesses told the MTA police that, off-camera, the man placed the victim over his shoulder and threw her in the back seat of a car against her will.

    The suspect then drove away in a light silver four-door Nissan Altima in the direction of the Long Island Expressway.

    The MTA has declined to say if anyone has been arrested or characterize the couple's relationship.
