St James woman lucky to be alive after evading attempted kidnapping

A St James woman recounts a terrifying ordeal in which she allegedly evaded an attempted kidnapping.

According to our partners at Facebook user Nina Carolina Arbea gave the experience on social media in a public post on Wednesday.

Arbea claimed when she tried to report the incident to police officers she was told there was nothing they could do.

Arbea said she had just arrived at her home in St James when another car pulled up close to her.

She said two men alighted from a blue Nissan Almera and ran toward her as she was trying to get inside, and she began to scream.

The videos have since gone viral online.

Arbea said her neighbour just happened to arrive at that time and the men left.

Separately Police are currently investigating the circumstances surrounding the abduction of a man at One Woodbrook Place, which occurred at approximately 11am.

Two men are said to be in police custody.

More on this incident as it becomes available.
