Kidnapped Woman Escapes by Jumping Out of Car Trunk: Police
The woman said she was abducted as she walked to her apartment.
A kidnapped woman made a daring escape by jumping from the trunk of a moving car, police said.
The unidentified Birmingham woman was walking to her car when a stranger approached and pulled out a gun, she told investigators.
The suspect demanded money, but the woman said she didn't have any, according to cops. He forced her back into her vehicle and drove off with her. Later, he made her get into the trunk and drove to several ATMs, where he used her card, police said.
In the parking lot of a Marathon gas station, she was able to open the trunk by using a safety latch inside. She leapt out as the man pulled away in her car.
"This woman just popped out of a trunk," Yosef Alsabah, the station's owner, told InsideEdition.com Wednesday. "We brought her inside. We locked the door and called 911. She was safe," he said.
She suffered minor cuts to her hands when she hit the pavement, Alsabah said.
Police later found her car abandoned. The suspect is still at large, according to authorities.
