BIRMINGHAM — A woman who escaped a kidnapping and robbery attempt in Avondale Tuesday came away with only minor injuries.
According to WIAT, the woman was abducted outside her apartment on 4th Avenue South and 38th Street around 10:30 p.m. The suspect reportedly pointed a gun at the woman, demanding money. When she told the man she had no money, the suspect forced the victim into her own car.
The suspect then drove to multiple locations where police believe he attempted to withdraw cash from ATM’s.
While at a gas station on Bessemer Road, the woman was able to jump out of the trunk while he drove away.
No suspects are in custody as of Wednesday evening.
