CCTV footage from a nearby house showed the frantic moment when the teen returned home after witnessing the horrific event.
In separate footage, a black hatchback was seen leaving the scene, prompting police to launch a manhunt.
Resident Kelly Douglas recalled hearing a horrific scream at the time of the alleged abduction.
“I heard someone screaming for help and then I heard a car driving away really fast,” she said 9 NewS.
“I went out into the street to see what was going on. The car was gone when I got here.’
The girl who was walking her dog had managed to escape her alleged kidnapper by running to people in the nearby park for help.
“I could see the girl had gone to some people who were already on the oval, she seemed quite upset,” said Ms Douglas.
Police have since launched an investigation and knocked on the door along Etherington Avenue and Lintott Way.
The detective has asked anyone who has more information or dashcam footage to come forward.
