A man was arrested after he kidnapped a woman at knifepoint in Alabama and shoved her into a white van that had chained doors, blanket coverings and a cage in the back, police said.
Investigators released body camera footage Wednesday showing the suspect’s arrest after the victim was rescued following a dramatic standoff in Brookside.
The suspect allegedly tried to run over a Brookside officer, but the officer shot into the van and disabled it, police said.
The suspect was identified as Sean E. Sanders of Los Angeles, and was charged with kidnapping, attempted murder on a police officer, resisting arrest, reckless endangerment and criminal mischief, authorities said.
Inside the van, police found wire cages over the windows, blankets covering the inside to prevent anyone from seeing and doors chained shut from the inside, police said.
