Two Michigan individuals were arrested recently after a woman claimed to have been kidnapped by them. The woman claims to have been shoved into the trunk of their vehicle at gunpoint. Charges are apparently pending the prosecutor's review, but such actions may be regarded as violent crimes.
According to a report by the Dearborn Police Department, the victim claims to have been taken from her home by two people. She identified them as a woman who was a former friend along with this woman's boyfriend. She further claims that the pair forced her into the trunk of their vehicle and drove off. By using the inner trunk release, the victim reportedly managed to free herself.
Police say she jumped from the car as it was traveling eastbound on Interstate 94. Emergency services were summoned by a passing motorist who stopped to provide assistance to the injured woman. She was rushed to Henry Ford Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries. The two suspects who allegedly kidnapped the woman fled after her escape but were located and arrested within a short time.
Violent crimes that involve firearms are not taken lightly in Michigan, and any person accused of such a crime may benefit from retaining the services of an experienced criminal law defense attorney. Each case is unique, and there are always two sides to every story. A lawyer can thoroughly investigate the circumstances related to the charges, and, based on the available information, a strategy based on the needs of the client can be devised.
