A woman was kidnapped outside a Salt Lake City store and forced to drive to Sandy. It happened yesterday afternoon, and the suspect is now in jail.
It was a scary situation for the woman, who was shopping at a Smith's store near 500 South and 500 East yesterday. Police say the woman was walking to her car around 2 p.m. when a man confronted her with a broken bottle.
The man held the bottle to her stomach and forced her into her car. He then got in the backseat and made her drive. She told police she felt what she thought was a gun on the back of her head.
The suspect told her to drive to the area of 9000 South and State Street in Sandy. That's where he demanded that she withdraw money from an ATM. After she gave him the money, the man ran off.
Police say the man was probably looking for drug money. "It's that kind of irrational behavior that just shows you can't predict whether or not they're going to follow through with their threat, so it's a very dangerous and tricky position to be in," explained Detective Jeff Bedard, spokesman for the Salt Lake City Police Department.
The woman drove to West Jordan where she called police. Police in Sandy eventually found the suspect at the 9000 South TRAX stop. He was identified as 23-year-old Brandon Gibbons. Gibbons has a history of drug-related offenses. Police say they did not find a gun on him.
Gibbons was taken to jail and booked on multiple felony charges. "It's very stressful. Obviously, she's upset. But we're happy everything worked out. We got the bad guy. He's in jail, and our victim is fine," Bedard said.
Police say in a situation like this, the best thing to do is try to not get in a car, if that's possible. They encourage people to think about what they would do if something like this were to happen and to have a plan in mind
