Two Texas teens that were scoping out a young woman in the backseat of a car that was stopped next to them ended up saving her from a kidnapper.
Aaron Arias, 19, and Jamal Harris, 17, saw that the woman in the car next to them was mouthing "help me" and immediately phoned the police.
"It's me and another guy. So we're checking out the girl in the backseat because, we're like, 'OK, she's kind of attractive,'" Arias told the 911 dispatcher, "and then all of a sudden the guy is turned back, looking at us. We looked in the backseat and the blonde female in the back was saying 'help me' or something, whispering it."
Police officers were able to find car and pull it over. It turned out that the 25-year-old woman in the backseat had been abducted about an hour before, Gawker reported.
The driver of the vehicle, 37-year-old Charles Atkins Lewis Jr., allegedly forced the victim into her own Lexus as she was leaving an office party in downtown Dallas. Atkins was arrested and charged with aggravated kidnapping. His bail was set at $50,000.
The young men met the woman after she was rescued and were rewarded with a hug for their efforts.
"I would describe it as the best hug I have ever gotten," said Arias. “She says we saved her life. I guess you could say we did. But I don't want to be that person who says they're a hero."
