(NBC) – Police are searching for a man in Jacksonville, Florida who allegedly abducted a pizza delivery driver.
Police officials say the suspect abducted the female driver after luring her to an abandoned home in the city’s west side. He then allegedly pointed a rifle at the victim and forced her into the trunk of her own vehicle. Police say the suspect told the victim he needed her vehicle to go kill someone in Lake City, Florida.
While driving westbound on I-10, officials say the victim pulled the emergency trunk release handle and jumped out of the vehicle onto the highway. She suffered road rash and a head wound.
Police are still searching for the suspect. He’s believed to be driving a gray 2007 Mazda MX-3 with Florida tags.
