GEORGE TOWN: A kindergarten teacher was taken on a 160km terror ride but managed to keep calm, talk to her abductor and con him into leaving the car before escaping.
The 20-year-old woman was driving to work at about 6.30am on Wednesday when a man suddenly jumped into her car when she stopped at a traffic light junction near Kampung Malabar here.
The man, who is believed to be in his 20s, shoved her to the passenger seat and began driving south along the North-South Expressway towards Perak.
The journey became even more frightening when the man told her he wanted to rape her and inquired whether she was a virgin.
The woman, however, managed to keep from panicking and tried to distract her abductor by talking to him.
At the same time, she began plotting her escape.
After about an hour, the woman then told the man she needed to stop by the roadside to answer nature's call.
They pulled over and she managed to convince the man to pull down some fencing by the road so she could relieve herself in the bushes.
When the man was busy trying to pull the fence, the victim swiftly jumped into the driver's seat and drove off.
She stopped a patrol car on the highway and told the policemen of the incident. The officers then escorted her to the Kuala Kangsar police station to lodge a report.
They later found a pack of cigarettes and a mobile phone charger in the car, believed to belong to the suspect.
George Town OCPD Asst Comm Gan Kong Meng said the police had obtained a photofit of the suspect based on the description given by the woman. - theStarOnline
