LiveLeak, September 14, 2013

Remember the story not so long ago about the teenagers who noticed the girl who mouthed “Help Me”?

Kaufman County Sheriff’s Department has released the dashcam video of their officers pulling over the vehicle and the tearful rescue of a young woman.

The woman said she was kidnapped and forced into her car by a gunman in Downtown Dallas, but managed to get the attention of two teenagers in a nearby car by mouthing the words, “Help me.”

The teens called police and officers rescued the woman within minutes.

In the newly released video, officers are seen pulling over the car and approaching the driver, asking to see his hands. As officers open the door to arrest the driver, an officer’s microphone picks up the crying of a young woman being held in the backseat.

A second officer opens the door for the woman, who leaves the vehicle and embraces her rescuer while visibly upset.

The woman, 25, was kidnapped on Aug. 22 near Bryan Street after she left a downtown office building.

Two young men, Aaron Arias, a 19-year-old college student, and Jamal Harris, 17, a Seagoville high school student, noticed the woman in the back seat of a car at a stoplight in Seagoville and called 911.
