Teens Check Out Hot Lady In Adjacent Car, Realize She Is Being Kidnapped And Save The Effing Day

teens rescue womanTeenagers 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.

    Teenagers have been awesome this summer.

    So I’m a feminist, I’m not saying this in a GENDER ROLLS FOR ERRONE kinda way, but what they did is manly as hell. Like, that’s how boys used to be brought up to act when someone’s in trouble, especially a woman, who doesn’t have the biological upper hand as far as physical strength and muscle mass. Again, I don’t mean this in an icky way. It’s just we’ve seen so many chivalrous teenagers this summer and omg are we being chivalrous again? Freaking sweet.

    This was in my area. I was so excited they caught the guy and that the guys followed him until the police arrived! Awesome!

    That’s fantastic! Ever since learning of the murder of Denise Amber Lee I’ve been hyper-aware of what’s happening in cars around me. I’ve called the police many times over suspected drunk drivers. But then again, I was raised by a mother that got out of the car at a red light and knocked on the window of a car next to us and told another woman that she needed to buckle up her daughter. We aren’t bystanders.
