While the hormonal lads were ogling, they realised something was wrong, and quickly called police before following the kidnapper, who cops soon nabbed
Two teenagers became unlikely heroes when they realised the woman they were eyeing up was being kidnapped.
Aaron Arias, 19, and Jamal Harris, 17, were stopped at a red light in Texas, America, when they noticed the blond woman in the car next to them.
While the hormonal lads were ogling, they realised something was wrong.
Harris said: “We finally made eye contact and I could see the serious expression on her face. I could read her lips and she was saying ‘Help me’.”
They called the police, with Arias saying to the 911 operator: “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’.”
“And then all of a sudden the guy is turned back, looking at us. We looked in the backseat and the blond female in the back was saying ‘help me’ or something, whispering it.”
The youngsters followed the car for 30 minutes, despite the driver trying to lose them.
Officers then arrived and discovered a 25-year-old woman in the backseat, who had been captured at gunpoint after leaving an office party.
The driver, Charles Atkins Lewis Jr, 37, has been arrested and remains in jail in lieu of a $50,000 bond.
Arias and Harris got their reward, as the unidentified woman, who was not injured, thanked them with a hug.
“I would describe it as the best hug I have ever gotten,” said Arias.
