Surveillance video shows a dark-colored vehicle pulling from a parking spot and slowly starting to drive away at a gas station in Birmingham, Ala.

The trunk pops open and a woman, seemingly trapped inside, propels herself from the car — landing on her back before running inside a convenience store. Frantically, she pleads: “Please help me! Please help me!”

Then, she runs toward a man inside the Gas Land station on Bessemer Road.

“What happened?” he replies.

“He’s been trying to rob me,” the woman says of her alleged kidnapper.
