CHARLOTTE -- A safety release on the inside of a car trunk apparently enabled a man to escape his kidnappers overnight in the northeast Charlotte area.
The incident was part of a carjacking that happened about 2 a.m. in a neighborhood off Mallard Creek Road.
Police say a man told them he was returning home, in the 8900 block of Legacy Park Drive, when two suspects approached him. The victim said he was ordered to get inside the trunk of the car and give his keys to the suspects.
Police say the suspects then drove off, with the victim locked in the trunk. The victim was able to escape a short time later and called police.
No suspects were caught, and police have not issued a description of the two men.
