VIDEO: Off-Duty Memphis Officer Kidnapped, Escapes From Moving Van

An off-duty Memphis Police Officer reported she was kidnapped by a man who threatened her with a knife early Sunday morning, according to multiple sources.

Memphis Police tell FOX13 they were called to the I-55 North ramp near E.H. Crump Blvd. at about 6:00 Sunday morning. When they arrived, several motorists surrounded the victim.

The off-duty officer told police she was kidnapped at the corner of Poplar Ave. and Hollywood Street.

Police say the officer was approached by a man, and she refused his advances. Police say the kidnapper then stepped out of his vehicle with a knife, and "threatened the victim as he forced her into the car."

The officer told police she jumped from the kidnapper's moving vehicle as he merged onto I-55, toward Arkansas.
