Carjacker caught shopping

Posted: Updated:

A young woman who escaped her attacker in a carjacking helped police capture him after she spotted him in a store aisle three days later.

Newly released 911 calls reveal the panic right after the carjacking last Tuesday in the parking lot of a Best Buy in Elyria, Ohio.

Madison Seman, 22, had just ended her shift at the store, and was sitting in her car, while talking to her boyfriend on a Facetime video call.

She told police that she had only been sitting in her car for less than 20 seconds, when a man opened her car door and forced his way inside.

He began to choke her and demanded money.

When she told him that her purse was in the trunk, he grabbed the car keys to look.

Once Seman saw that he was next to the trunk, she ran to get help.

However, an amazing coincidence led to the suspect's capture.
