Jordan Dinsmore is a 20-year-old student at Midlands Tech in South Carolina. One day, after travelling home from a shift at the restaurant where she worked, the unthinkable happened – she was kidnapped at gunpoint by 3 men in a car
The three individuals kidnapped her and planned to rape her, however, the college student escaped from her situation, thanks to the use of some advice given to her by her mother.
The kidnappers emerged from a nearby wooded area and immediately pointed a gun at Dinsmore. They told her to get back into her car with them, however, none of the kidnappers knew how to drive her car – a Scion, which was a manual transmission.
One of the assailants fled the scene, but the other two kidnappers told Dinsmore to drive, which ended up giving the young lady her chance to escape this horrible situation.
The remaining kidnappers forced Jordan Dinsmore to drive to an ATM. There, on their orders, she withdrew $300 and handed it over. Dinsmore pleaded with her kidnappers to just take the money and her car. However, it was clear that the kidnappers had other horrible plans.
They told Dinsmore to drive to another location. They told Dinsmore that she would be forced to have sex once they arrived.
The situation looked dire, but the 20-year-old college student escaped by virtue of advice she had been given by her mother, Beth Turner.
Turner had been in a similar situation when she was in college, where a man had attempted to kidnap her. Turner had taught her daughter to fight back and never let them take you to a second location.
After leaving the drive-through ATM, Dinsmore left her seatbelt undone, hoping that her kidnappers would not notice the ringing safety alarm. Luckily, they didn’t.
As she continued to drive, she saw an opportunity. She allowed the car to drift into the intersection after intentionally missing a turn. Then, she flipped the car into neutral and rolled out of the driver’s side door.
Dinsmore escaped by running down the street and screaming for help. “I just screamed: ‘Call 911! Call 911! Someone just kidnapped me and threatened to shoot me!’’ Dinsmore said. A woman who was driving by saw Dinsmore and immediately picked her up. She then contacted the police and told them what had happened.
The three kidnappers have been arrested and identified by local police. One of the kidnappers was 17 years old and will be charged as an adult. The other two were 15 and face charges of robbery, kidnapping, and weapons possession. Police also believe the kidnappers may be responsible for several other crimes of a similar nature in the area.
It looks like these scumbags are going away for a long time, and rightly so. Thanks goodness this brave young woman had the courage and intelligence to get out of this horrible situation!
