Woman forces her way out of vehicle boot after kidnapping

An Alabama woman jumped from a moving vehicle in a harrowing escape from a man who allegedly abducted her at gunpoint in front of her apartment by forcing her into her own auto, PEOPLE confirms.

Police said the 25-year-old victim was abducted from outside her apartment in Avondale after telling the assailant during an attempted robbery that she wasn't carrying any cash.

Birmingham Police Sgt. Bryan Shelton told NBC that the suspect drove "to multiple unknown locations" with the woman still inside the trunk, using her card to withdraw money from ATMs. The driver took off.

She managed to escape when he stopped at a petrol station, and somehow managed to open the boot and roll out while the vehicle was pulling away.

Yosef Alsabah, the owner of Gas Land, said the suspect tried to withdraw cash several times before approaching the counter and asking for help with the ATM. "I kept an eye on him".

When the suspect gave up and returned to his vehicle, Alsabah was watching. Surveillance video shows her jumping from the trunk and running to safety. Once inside, she grabbed Alsabah's shotgun.
