A 94-year-old Arizona woman freed herself from the trunk of a car after a man allegedly abducted her and took her to a parking lot in Scottsdale, Arizona, CBS News reported.
Scottsdale Police spokesman, Sgt. Ben Hoster, said a man in his 30s grabbed the woman at her home in Scottsdale and tied her up before putting her in the trunk of a car and driving away. The woman then spent about seven hours in the parking lot of the Scottsdale Fashion Square mall before she freed herself.
Witnesses who spotted the woman called 911, ABC15 reported.
The woman was sent to the hospital. A neighbor is worried about the woman because she has no family nearby.

“I’m worried right now because she’s all alone. Her daughters are wonderful but one lives in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, and I think one’s in Connecticut,” Connie Conradi, who has been the woman’s neighbor for 25 years, told CBS affiliate KPHO.
“I am so impressed that she found her way out of the trunk,” said Conradi, as reported by 12News. “I don’t know how she did it but think it’s wonderful and I’m very proud of her.”
