An 80-year-old woman was kidnapped Monday during a home invasion, then left in the trunk of her car until found by authorities.
According to Newscenter 11, the victim woke up to a man dragging her out of bed after he broke into her house, and that she was terrified as she was fighting for her life.
The man forced her into her car and made her drive him around town. He later put her in the trunk.
Meridian police said the suspect then went to a hotel and picked up two women who heard a noise in the trunk. The women dropped off the suspect at a gas station and called the police.
The 80-year-old woman was found at the MCC campus in the trunk of her car. She suffered minor injuries from the attack.
The police are still searching for the suspect. If you have information about the suspect, call Crimestoppers at 855-485-8477. You don’t have to give your name and could be eligible for a cash reward.
