(Memphis) Memphis police say a 71-year-old woman narrowly escaped being abducted from a parking lot.

The woman was putting items in her car at the Mendenhall Commons Shopping Center Tuesday afternoon when she says a man asked for a ride to Nashville.

The woman said when she told the man she couldn't give him a ride he said, “Get in the car, I have a gun.”

The woman ran one way, and the suspect another.

A witness saw the man run and followed him to the corner of Poplar and Colonial where the witness took a picture of the man.

If you have information about the man, call Crime Stopper at 528-CASH.
