A video taken at a gas station shows an Alabama woman fleeing after escaping captivity inside a vehicle's trunk.

Police said the woman had been kidnapped and was able to get out when her captor stopped to fill up the tank. The suspect, Timothy Wyatt, had broken into her home Oct. 31 and abducted her.

After the woman was able to get out of the vehicle, she ran inside for help. Wyatt can be seen running out of the station once he sees her enter.

He has been arrested and charged with robbery, kidnapping and domestic violence.
