Dearborn police arrested two suspects in connection to the kidnapping of a 22-year-old woman early Sunday morning.

Around 1:24 a.m. Sunday, police responded to Henry Ford Hospital in Detroit on a report of a woman who had escaped a kidnapping.

The woman told police she was abducted by a former female friend and the friend’s boyfriend in the area of Warren and Lonyo in Dearborn. The victim said she was forced into the trunk of the suspect’s vehicle at gunpoint and driven away from the scene.

“The victim was able to use the vehicle’s trunk release and jumped from the moving vehicle onto EB I-94 near Livernois in the city of Detroit,” police said in a statement Thursday. “A passing motorist stopped to assist the victim, who was then transported to Henry Ford Hospital for medical attention.”

The suspects fled after the victim escaped, police said. She suffered non-life threatening injuries after she jumped from the moving vehicle.

Dearborn police arrested two suspects Wednesday in Warren. Police are awaiting a charging decision from the Wayne County Prosecutor’s Office.

“The Dearborn Police Department will continue to use all of its available resources to vigorously pursue anyone who commits crime in the city of Dearborn,” Dearborn Police Chief Ronald Haddad said in a statement Thursday. “We are thankful that we were able to apprehend the perpetrators of the kidnapping quickly and that the victim escaped without serious injuries.”
