Student Is Abducted by Men in Parking Lot, Then Remembers Mom’s Life-Saving Words

Jordan Dinsmore, a 20-year-old college student from South Carolina, was returning home from work one night when her life flashed before her eyes. Now, she’s telling her story in hopes to spread awareness to others.

When Jordan returned to her apartment building at 1:00AM on July 26th, three men were waiting for her behind a line of trees. The men held her at gunpoint and took her personal belongings. While Jordan begged the men to just take her items and leave, the situation got even more drastic.

Since the men were unable to operate Jordan’s car because it was a stick shift, they grabbed Jordan and forced her to drive them to a gas station where she would use her debit card to grab money out of an ATM.

After that, they told her they were going to sexually assault her, and that was when Jordan drew the line and decided to take action against the men.

She was inspired by the words her mom once told her.

“I thought back to my mom. She was almost a victim of assault when she was in college, and she fought back and fought the man off, and I thought you know, I’m going to be strong like my mom, I’m going to get myself out of this.”

According to ABC News 4, Jordan explained:

“My mom always told me, you know, don’t let them get you alone, because then you have no help, you have no hope for passerby’s to see you or hear you, and you have no help to get out.”

After Jordan withdrew the money from the ATM, she started planning the escape. Since she took off her seatbelt to reach the buttons on the ATM, she decided to leave the seatbelt off. This allowed her to jump out of the car while she was driving.

“I just kind of thought in my head, ‘Do it, do it, do it,’ and then the next thing I know, my hands were on the handle, I was opening the door and I was staring at the pavement.”

Then, the next part required a good samaritan. Jordan got up on her feet and began seeking for help. Two cars drove by without stopping but fortunately, the third one stopped to help her. The only regret the college student had was not getting a glance of her perpetrators faces before jumping out.

“They were in a moving vehicle, without a driver, and a 20-year-old girl just outsmarted you. I wish I could’ve seen their faces at that moment, so that they knew that I might have been a victim, but I was not victimized.”

Authorities arrested the teens, who were 15 and 17 years of age. It turns out they were also involved in other cases of armed robberies, carjackings and violent kidnappings.
