Abducted woman saved after calling police from gas station bathroom

The Dutch police received an unusual phone call on Saturday morning. A woman, calling from the bathroom of a gas station on the A20 near Nieuwerkerk, reported that she had been abducted under threat of a firearm, the Telegraaf reports.

The police in Gouda were unable to respond quickly enough, so officers from Rotterdam were sent to the scene. When five police cars arrived at BP gas station De Vink, the panicked woman came running out of the building.

She immediately pointed out her abductor. A 29-year-old man from Apeldoorn was arrested at gunpoint. 

The Hague police's sex crime unit is investigating the case.
