Jordan, a 20-year-old college student, left work and was returning home to South Carolina, when her life nearly changed forever. Now, she’s telling her story…
When Jordan got to her student apartment building at around 1 a.m. on July 2017, three men were waiting for her. The men took her personal possessions and pointed a gun at her. But that wasn’t the worst part. The situation soon became even scarier.
They were unable to operate her car because it was a stick shift, so two of them grabbed Jordan and forced her to drive them to a gas station.
“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.”
“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 her escape. She decided not to put her seat belt back on. Instead, she impulsively jumped out of the car while she was driving.
