Clinton Township Woman Stops Kidnapping Outside of Mall

Two men tried abducting a Lake Orion woman in the Great Lakes Crossing mall parking lot.

A 47-year-old Lake Orion woman drew attention to a kidnapping attempt Saturday afternoon at Great Lakes Crossing parking lot by throwing herself to the ground and screaming, WXYZ reports. 

Witnessing the scene, an 18-year-old Clinton Township woman intervened as two Mount Morris men allegedly held a gun to the victim's back and tried forcing her into her car, the television station reports. 

"She was hollering out that she was calling police, that she was on the phone with police…yelling for them to stop,” Lt. Jill McDonnell at the Auburn Hills Police department told Channel 7 of the Clinton Township woman's actions. 

Edellis Alexander and Isaiah Herron were arrested and charged with armed robbery, carjacking, attempted unlawful imprisonment, receiving and concealing a firearm and felon in possession of firearms. They are being held on $1 million bonds in Oakland County Jail, the station reports.
