A woman was abducted from her home in the 100 block of Pettite Cove on Friday night.

28-year-old Asunti Grayson was arriving home with her 4-year-old nephew as the door pushed in behind her by a man with a gun. 

"When I went to close door behind me, someone came behind me and asked for my money," Grayson said.

She said the man demanded money, but she only had $5, which he felt was not enough. 

The man, wearing a medical mask, held a gun to Grayson, her aunt and the 4-year-old.

The man forced her in her car at gunpoint after breaking a lamp with his gun and demanding that she give him money and her car keys. The man then forced her to drive to William park at Auburn and Craft Roads, and forced her out of her car.

"We went down a dark street with a park and he told me to park the car and turn my lights off," she said. "I said no. That was the point I started kicking screaming and decided I need to fight for my life."

Investigators said the suspect hit Grayson twice in the head with his gun. He even shot at her. She told police she fought with the man and they fell on the ground.

Grayson said she was then saved by her "guardian angel."

She said before seeing headlights in the parking lot, she thought her kidnapper was going to kill her.

"He could have ended my life for nothing because I only had five dollars in my wallet," Grayson said. "He doesn't care about anyone else's life."

The headlights of a woman pulling into the parking lot scared the abductor away. The woman even drove the victim to the police station to get help.

"I felt like God sent an angel," Grayson said. "I was at the point that I wasn't visible anymore to the public. She came just in time."

The suspect has not been found yet.
