    A doorbell camera captured what sounded like the frightened screams of someone crying for help late Tuesday in a South Los Angeles neighborhood.

    The piercing screams are clearly audible on video from a camera in the 3800 block of Third Avenue in the Leimert Park area. The mysterious audio was captured at about 11 p.m. Tuesday.

    The person can be heard screaming, "Somebody help me, please!"

    Officers responded to a possible kidnapping report in the neighborhood, but did not find any evidence of a crime.

    A car can be seen passing the home shortly after the screams. 

    Witnesses described the car as possibly a four-door white Prius with two people inside. The car might have plastic wrap over the front passenger side window.

    One witness said it appeared a man in the driver's seat was pulling the hair of a woman in the passenger's seat.

    Anyone with information about the possible kidnapping case was asked to call the LAPD at 213-485-6570.
