This is a true “Signs The World Is Coming To An End!” A 22-year old woman who was 9 months pregnant is lucky to be alive today. The woman was kidnapped, set on fire, and shot once in the back in Warren, Michigan.
Police say she was dropping her ex-boyfriend off early Saturday morning after a movie date, and as the two pulled into the garage, the door closed behind them.
“The next thing she knew she was grabbed by the throat and a gun was put to her head,” Warren Police Commissioner Jere Green told ABC News affiliate WXYZ-TV in Detroit. “She was ordered to the ground.”
Duct tape was placed over her mouth and wrapped around her hands and feet, and she was blindfolded, before being put back into her car and driven to a field in Detroit, Green said.
The woman told police she felt liquid being poured on her, heard a match strike, and then was set on fire.
“She was able to get out of the car and start rolling on the ground, trying to put the fire out,” Green said. “And when that happened, two shots were fired, and she was struck once in the back.”
The woman played dead, and the assailants fled. That’s when she unbound herself, drove to a local gas station and called her mother, who picked her up and took her to the hospital.
Police took the woman’s ex-boyfriend into custody on Saturday and named him a person of interest in the case. He had expressed to several people that he did not want the child, and police say he did not and has not called 911 after she was kidnapped.
The woman went into labor following the attack and gave birth to a baby boy. Both she and the infant are expected to survive.
