Striking surveillance video shows a woman jump out of the trunk of a auto in an attempt to escape from her alleged kidnapper.
Authorities say the unidentified woman was approached near her apartment in Birmingham by a man demanding money and pointing a gun at her.
AlSabah said the man got angry when he was unable to withdraw money, and briskly returned to the vehicle to drive away - that's when the victim suddenly jumped out of the auto.
He later left the store and drove off, which was when a woman jumped out of the trunk of a black vehicle, as seen in this video.
"I got her inside and locked the door, then called the police", Alsabah said, adding that the frightened woman grabbed his shotgun for protection.
The 25-year-old suffered minor injuries during her escape. The driver took off.
Birmingham Police have released this photo of the kidnapper and are working to track him down.

In the water revenue, 26% went to soda giants Coca-Cola Co. and PepsiCo Inc., which sell Dasani and Aquafina brands, respectively. On a per capita basis, bottled water consumption exceeded 39 gallons compared with 38.5 gallons for soda.
As for the kidnapper, Alsabah realized from the get-go that there was something suspicious about him. He then made her get into her auto before driving to multiple locations, and was believed to be using her card to get money.
She used the gas station owner's phone to call her family, and police arrived shortly after.
CBS42's James McConatha worked to obtain surveillance video of the woman's escape, as well as the suspect entering the gas station.
He said the man got "mad" after being unable to get the ATM card to work and then watched as he returned to the auto, and drove away.
After he left, Alsabah watched him drive off and saw the woman jump out of the trunk and rush inside.
He then explained what happened after seeing the woman jump out of the trunk. She was taken to the hospital with a few cuts and bruises.
