An 11-year-old boy was in his apartment complex laundry room when a man approached him, asking to use his laundry card. After the boy got permission from his mother, he went to give the card to the man and was suddenly snatched up and thrown into a car.

THE TERRIFYING DETAILS

The boy shared details of the scary encounter. He said the man threatened him and said, "Obey me or else you'll get killed." According to the young boy, the man tried putting him into different sexual positions.

HOW HE ESCAPED

The boy managed to escape when his hands were free. "He grabbed my hands, but then he grabbed my phone to put it somewhere else; he forgot my hands were free, so then I opened the door."

NEIGHBORS QUICKLY TRAPPED THE MAN
