Teenagers should hopefully, and generally, be keeping their eyes on the road and not on pretty ladies at stoplights. But thanks to the wandering eyes of some Dallas teens, and eventually the police, one 25-year-old woman was freed from her abductor.
Nbcdfw.com reports that Aaron Arias, a 19-year-old college student, and Jamal Harris, 17, a Seagoville high school student, spotted the young lady in the back seat of a car when they stopped at a light in Seagoville:
“It’s me and another guy, so we’re checking out the girl in the backseat because, we’re like, ‘OK, she’s kind of attractive,’” Arias said. “And then, all of the sudden, you know, the guy is turned back, looking at us.”
The teenagers reportedly called 911 after the woman mouthed “help me.” And not only that, but the kids continued to tail the car all the way down U.S. 175 until police eventually busted on the scene and pulled over the alleged kidnapper, Charles Atkins Lewis Jr. He was arrested on charges of aggravated kidnapping and is currently in jail for $50,000 bond.
The young woman, who is unharmed, was apparently forced into Lewis’s car at gunpoint after leaving a party in downtown Dallas. She has since hugged the teens for essentially seeing something that appeared off and saying something. Good job, lads.
