Police in Gwinnett County have arrested a suspect in connection with an attempted kidnapping that resulted in a mother jumping from a moving car with her baby.
The attempted kidnapping happened August 18.
Quinton Rogers was arrested Dec. 8 with the help of the US Marshals Service and the assistance of the Gwinnett County Sheriff’s Office. Police say Rogers was identified by analyzing physical evidence obtained by detectives.
The investigation has shown that this was a random attack and there was no prior relationship between Rogers and the victim.
The incident was captured on video surveillance at the Exxon Gas Station at 1350 Boggs Road.
The victim called 911 and told police that she stopped and purchased fast food while on her way home on the night of August 18. After purchasing her food, she stopped at the gas station to park and eat. The victim can be seen on surveillance eating her food at the trunk area of her car while her one year old child is asleep inside.
While the victim was eating, a man can be seen walking up the roadway to the gas station on foot. The surveillance video shows that when he sees the victim, he changes direction and walks over to her.
According to the victim, the man reached for what the victim believed was a gun and punched her in the face multiple times. The man told the victim to get in the backseat of the car with her baby while he got in the driver’s seat. The vehicle can be seen on surveillance leaving the scene with two of the car doors wide open.
While the man was driving away with the victim and her baby, he demanded money from her. He also reportedly told her that he was going to choke her and kill her.
Fearing for her life, the victim grabbed her baby’s car seat with the child inside and jumped from the vehicle. As she jumped from the vehicle, the suspect kept driving.
