A Destin woman says two men forced her into a cream colored car outside her Destin home before one a.m. this morning, but her boyfriend was able to thwart their kidnapping attempt.
The 22-year-old told deputies that she had walked out of her driveway on Sandalwood Drive when a cream Crown Victoria or Cadillac style car with three men inside pulled up. She says the driver was armed with a handgun. She says the two passengers were forcing her into the car’s back seat when her 22-year-old boyfriend ran up and pulled her out. The car then headed east on Sandalwood towards Beach Drive.
The woman described the front seat passenger as a black male, approximately 6’8” tall and 300 pounds, wearing a black tee-shirt. He had dropped a Florida Gators hat at the scene. She described the passenger in the rear seat as a black male, approximately six-feet tall and slender.
