Woman Speaks About Terrifying Kidnapping in Little Rock

LITTLE ROCK, AR -- It was a terrifying night for one young mother, kidnapped at gunpoint by two strangers while waiting for friends outside a home on a quite block in south Little Rock.

The horrid ordeal lasted about an hour. During that time, the 26-year-old mother says she asked God for protection and begged her kidnappers to allow her to see her daughter again.

"I'm just kinda shocked that I'm sitting with you here," the woman said Saturday.

With her kidnappers still on the loose, the woman asked us to disguise her identity, because, despite her fear, she wants her story out.

"I was going to a friends house, and I was just waiting for them outside," she said of Wednesday night.

The woman says she was sitting in her white Chrysler car in front of a house on Grace Drive.

"I hear a knock on the window, and suddenly I see this gun at the window," she said.

The man told her to open the door.

"I said 'no, I don't want to,' and he signals me to look at my driver-side window," she said.

At the other window, she saw another man holding a gun.

"We will shoot and kill you if you don't open this door," she says the second man said to her.

That's when she finally obliged and opened the door.

"One of them told me to 'shut up' and then hit me on the left side of my head with the gun," she said.

She says she was forced to drive to an ATM at a Bank of America off Geyer Springs Road where she withdrew $400 and gave it to the two men.

Still, the ordeal wasn't done.

She says the men took her to a dark, rundown apartment complex and told her to get out.

"I'm thinking I'm just going to be ready for whatever happens to me," she said. 

The men made crude sexual comments and groped her before forcing her to crawl under her car, she says.

Then, her kidnappers took off, and she was able to drive to safety.

"I know God saved me," she said. "God kept his angels on me."

She says her prayers during the ordeal were to have another chance to see her two-year-old baby girl again.

She'll likely never forget the next time that happened.

"I just held her in my arms and just looked at her in a different way," she said. "[I] thanked God that he let me hold my baby," she said.

The family says detectives told them they're working to collect surveillance video from the bank and other evidence.
