EDGEWATER, Colo. (AP) — Police are looking for a man suspected of kidnapping a 16-year-old suburban Denver girl who managed to escape after stabbing her abductor with his knife.
The kidnapping began Wednesday evening and ended about 20 miles away on a highway in Aurora. Police say the abductor asked the girl for directions as she waited for a bus and then offered to give her a ride home. She accepted, but when they got near her house she told authorities that he drove into an alley in Edgewater. She says he pulled out a knife, bound her hands with rope and began to drive away.
About an hour later, she said was able to escape after freeing one of her hands, getting the knife off the floor and stabbing the suspect.
