Alabama woman escapes from kidnapper's trunk

While driving, officials say the man threatened to stab her, and he eventually stopped the vehicle and forced her into the trunk.

He tied her hands behind her back and pulled the victim out of the property and into the boot of his blue Ford Taurus.

The post indicates the man got on top of the victim and began choking her.

Seconds later, the victim managed to pop open the boot with a lever inside. Surveillance video reveals the dramatic moment the victim pushed open the trunk, jumped out and ran inside the store for help. She is seen running from the vehicle, while Wyatt was inside the convenience store. As she ran into the store, Wyatt noticed her and fled the scene.

The woman bolted into the store to yell for help - prompting the suspect, whom cops identified as 36-year-old Timothy Jabbar Wyatt, to run back into the auto and drive away, the Montgomery Advertiser reported.

Wyatt was captured Halloween night as he was sleeping in an abandoned building, WIAT reports.

Chilton County sheriff's officials said the suspect was taken into custody hours after this alleged crime. The subject, later identified as Wyatt, was taken into custody.

The Autauga County Sheriff's Office has warrants out for Robbery 1st Degree, Kidnapping 1st Degree, and Domestic Violence 2nd Degree in Wyatt's name and are actively searching for the man they have deemed to be armed and unsafe.

Wyatt was out on bond in Chilton County for the charge of possession of marijuana, a felony, when the kidnapping incident occurred. He was also arrested in April on charges of attempted murder, sodomy and robbery.
