Teens save a kidnapped woman and it all started because two teen boys spotted a “cute girl” in the backseat of another car. Aaron Arias, 19, and Jamal Harris, who were out for a drive, came to a stop light and they spotted a “cute” girl in the backseat of nearby car, but something wasn’t right their gut told them.
According to MSN Now on Sept. 6, the girl looked at them frantically and mouthed “help me.” Arias dialed 911 and told the police that a blonde girl in the back seat of a car mouthed the words “help me.” He gave the 911 operator their location and continued to follow the car giving police updates on their location.
Arias and his friend were right, this man had taken the girl at gunpoint off of a Dallas street and her “help me” was sincere. She needed help and these kids acted on their gut instinct and called the Dallas Police Department through the 911 system.
When Arias talked to the 911 operator he was very clear, but you could hear the excitement in his voice as he tells the operator that he believes there’s kidnapping in progress. “Fox and Friends” on Friday morning played the 911 call and you can hear Arias and his friend’s excitement when the police finally showed up behind his car.
Arias kept the police informed what street they were on and what direction they were going as he followed this car with the kidnapped girl inside. He and his friend kept an eye on the car as they followed the kidnapper close behind.
The police pulled the car over and these teens were correct, it was a kidnapping. Charles Atkins Lewis Jr. was arrested on charges of aggravated kidnapping. After the girl was checked out by medical personal, who was also called to the scene, she went over to the two teens who turned out to be her saviors and gave them each one big hug and a thank you.
These kids went with their gut and what they thought was a kidnapping in progress, really was. The girl followed the number one rule of being a victim of a kidnapping, do whatever you can to bring attention to yourself. That she did! This story has one terrific ending because of two teen heroes today.
