Kidnapping victim escapes from trunk at Alabama gas station

Kidnapping victim escapes from trunk at Alabama gas station

Wyatt reportedly demanded money as he continued to choke her.

Wyatt then allegedly threatened to kill the victim before stopping in a remote area and then forcing her into the trunk of the vehicle.

Wyatt stopped in a rural area and threw the kidnapped woman into the car's trunk, authorities said.

As she enters the gas station, you see the suspect flee. That's when the victim was able to make her escape.

In the video, the suspect can be seen walking away before the trunk pops open and the woman darts out, running towards the store and looking for help. As he walked towards the store entrance, he paused to look at the trunk of the vehicle before entering the store.

Timothy Jabbar Wyatt, 36, was arrested at 1:34 a.m. Wednesday by the Chilton County Sheriff's Office following a traffic stop, a release from CrimeStoppers reads.

Authorities say the kidnapping suspect was found sleeping inside an old trade school building. "I am beyond proud of our team!"

Currently, Wyatt is in the Chilton County Jail charged with possession of marijuana second-degree.

Wyatt is wanted on kidnapping, robbery and burglary charges in Autauga County, courthouse records show.

"We are very relieved to have this unsafe man off the streets", said Autauga County Sheriff Joe Sedinger.

An armed and "extremely" risky suspect in a violent kidnapping in Autauga County is in custody.

The Autauga County Sheriff's Office began searching for Wyatt after an incident early Monday morning.

Wyatt's relationship to the victim remains unknown. Police are not commenting on Wyatt's possible connection to the victim.
