Kidnapped woman escapes from moving car's trunk and runs to freedom


A woman who says she was forced into the trunk of her auto at gun point, made a courageous escape.

The woman was reportedly kidnapped near Birmingham. She managed to jump out as the gunman began to drive off from a gas station.

Police are still looking for the suspect.

The woman initially grabbed Alsabah's shotgun - but he cautioned her to be careful and assured her the man would not return.

The woman is said to have suffered minor injuries after her successful escape, and ran into the convenience store to call 911.


Yosef Alsabah, the owner of Gas Land, released the security camera footage to Storyful.

"He was not right...there was something going on with him", Alsabah told Alabama.com. "He looked like he had a pistol in his pocket".

That's where the station owners say they tried to use the woman's credit card to withdraw money from an ATM. When she told him he didn't have any money, she said her forced her into her black Nissan Altima. He said he then returned to the vehicle and drove away.

"I saw the trunk popped up, a woman ran inside", AlSabah, 48, told NBC News.

Another staff member is then seen picking up a phone to call the police. The gas station owner said the woman told him she was driven to multiple ATMs where her kidnapper withdrew cash. She also said he took her cell phone and wallet.
