On Tuesday night in Birmingham, Alabama, an unidentified 25-year-old woman made a daring escape from the trunk of her car after a man held her at gunpoint and kidnapped her.
The woman was abducted at her apartment, where the kidnapper stuffed her in the trunk of her own car when she refused to give him money. He also took her phone and wallet, then drove the black Nissan Altima to a Gas Land petrol station.
Camera footage from video surveillance at the station catches the woman breaking free from the trunk and rolling over into the concrete as the kidnapper speeds away. She quickly gets up and rushes inside the gas station into the arms of the store’s owner, Yosef Alsabah.
“He was not right… there was something going on with him,” Alsabah said of the kidnapper when he was in the store attempting to withdraw funds from an ATM. “He looked like he had a pistol in his pocket — I kept an eye on him.”
The suspect is currently still at large. Footage of the ordeal can be viewed below:
