A woman, a Walmart employee, was in the parking lot of a Walmart store in Traveler's Rest, South Carolina, when a man approached her. He then attempted to carjack her and possibly kidnap her. When she resisted, he drove off in her car with her purse.
Luckily, no one was injured.
From an article and news video:
Police Chief Lance Crowe said the woman worked inside the store and was headed to her car in the employee lot on the grocery-side of the building when a man approached and asked for some change about 10:30 p.m. Wednesday.
When the woman said no and kept walking to her car, the man pulled out a gun and demanded she get in the vehicle, Crowe said. He said the woman believed he was trying to steal the car and kidnap her, so she tried to grab the gun and struggle with the man before she took off running.
The man grabbed her purse and drove off in her car, a 2004 VW Beetle, police said. Later Thursday morning, Crowe said the same officer working the case discovered the woman's Beetle unoccupied in the parking lot of Tractor Supply in Travelers Rest.Walmart. Save money. Die faster.
