KHOU-11 reports on another dangerous time/place/behavior situation:

Houston police are checking out leads and hoping the public will help track down two men who kidnapped a River Oaks resident Thursday.

A $5,000 reward is being offered for information that leads to an arrest in the case.

The victim talked with 11 News a few hours after her terrifying ordeal.

“This is very scary this is happening in our city. Anywhere in our city,” said the woman, who didn’t want to be identified since her attackers are still on the loose.

She said she was near the end of her morning walk when suddenly, out of nowhere, two men pulled her off the street.

“I was kicking and screaming and fighting to try and get away. They were large and strong, and threw me into the trunk of their car,” she told 11 News.

The two men drove away with the woman trapped in the back and fighting to get out.

The good news is the victim pulled on the emergency release latch in the trunk, and escaped the moving car.

So, be sure to add “mornings, River Oaks area, walking” to your list of dangerous time/place/behavior situations to avoid, if you don’t want to become a crime victim.

This would be a great opportunity to break in Chief Hurtt’s Ballistic Engineered Armored Response vehicle. Just park that bad boy in River Oaks and put an end to this nonsense.
