BIRMINGHAM, ALABAMA — Surveillance camera footage from an Alabama gas station shows the moment a 25-year-old woman leaps from the trunk of a car to escape her kidnapper
The woman was about to enter her Birmingham home on Tuesday night when she was confronted by an armed man demanding cash, reported Alabama news website AL.com, citing police.
She had none, so the man took her ATM card and put her in the trunk of her own vehicle. Then he drove the car around the city, withdrawing money from her bank account at several ATM machines.
