Woman escapes kidnapper by jumping out of trunk

Woman escapes kidnapper by jumping out of trunkā€

Striking surveillance video shows a woman jump out of the trunk of a auto in an attempt to escape from her alleged kidnapper.

Police say the 25-year-old woman was kidnapped Tuesday night outside her apartment in Avondale, east of Birmingham. The suspect pointed the gun at the victim and demanded money.

After they are unable to get any money, the trunk is seen popping open as the vehicle drives away and the woman jumps out.

Birmingham Police on Wednesday tweeted a photo of the kidnapping suspect. Although the situation was undoubtedly horrifying, the women escaped with minor injuries.

Using the gas station owner's phone, she called her family as the two waited for the police to arrive. "There was something going on with him", Alsabah told AL.com.

The man later allegedly made the woman get into the trunk of her auto before driving to several locations.

We can surmise that he took the woman's debit card out of her wallet and attempted to withdraw money from her account at the ATM.

'He looked like he had a pistol in his pocket - I kept an eye on him'.

Alsabah said he watched from the window as the suspect started to drive away.

"I saw the trunk popped up, a woman ran inside."

The video then shows them driving off. Once inside, she grabbed Alsabah's shotgun.

Police are still searching for the kidnapper.
