A disoriented woman found in Telegraph Hill on Sunday told police  she had been kidnapped from a laundromat in Louisiana and driven to The City, where the assailant booted her from the car, police said.

The 51-year-old woman, who has not been identified, reportedly sought help from a security guard after she was kicked out of the car.  The security guard called cops, who found the woman at Filbert and Battery streets around 7 p.m., police said Monday.

The victim, who was suffering from amnesia, was transported to an area hospital, police said. Her injuries were not life threatening, and she has since been released from the hospital, police spokesman Officer Albie Esparza said.

The woman told police she was nabbed from a laundromat in Monroe, La., on June 15. The kidnapper was a white man in either his his late 30s or early 40s, police said.

The woman said her kidnapper stranded her in San Francisco on Sunday.

San Francisco cops called authorities in the city of Monroe, LA., and confirmed the woman was from there, Esparza said.

A detective in Monroe is on the case, according to a spokeswoman for the city's police department.

The suspect fled in a 2007 black Ford Fusion, with a Louisiana license plate, No. PPJ393, police said.
