How Jordan Dinsmore a Columbia, South Carolina student used her wits to escape a racist car kidnapping at gunpoint. A month long crime spree directed at whites.
Jordan Dinsmore a 20 year old Columbia, South Carolina college student has told of survived a racially motivated attempted kidnapping at the hands of three ‘black’ attackers.
Cops said the attempted kidnapping had been the culmination of an escalating crime spree specifically targeting whites for armed robbery and assault.
Arrested in the crime spree was 17-year-old Raquan Dejoure Green and two 15-year-old males who cannot be named because of their age. The boys’ arrest came after a culmination of violent crime acts over the month of July.
Told Richland County Sheriff Leon Lott via WYFF, ‘They made a statement that they did not like white people and they were only going to rob white people’.
Matters came to the fore early Wednesday morning, when the three teen youths sought to abduct Dinsmore at gunpoint after she’d ended a shift at Buffalo wild Wings, circa 12.30 am.
The Midlands Tech student, who is majoring in criminal justice, had driven home and parked in her apartment complex (The Village Apartments on Southern Drive )when the three youths jumped out wielding a gun.
Dinsmore’s attackers forced her to the ground and took her purse and phone, threatening to shoot her if she screamed.
They then forced her to unlock her car, and motioned for her to get in the back.

Told Dinsmore via The State, ‘I was pleading with them to just take my stuff and let me go, but they said that I had to come with them’.
Stumping the attackers was the manual transmission on Dinsmore’s 2009 Scion automobile, with none of them able to drive a stick shift.
In frustration, one of the males ran away, while the other two forced Dinsmore to take the wheel and drive them to an ATM.
There, she withdrew the maximum $300, hoping that her assailants would be placated.
Instead, they told her to drive them to their ‘auntie’s’ house, telling Dinsmore that their friends were going to rape her.

Told Dinsmore of that moment during a recent news conference, ‘I thought back to my mom,’
Adding, ‘She was almost a victim of sexual assault when she was a college student. But she fought back and fought the man off. And I thought, “I’m gonna be strong like my mom, and I’m gonna get myself out of this.”‘
Her mom’s advice, which she’d drilled into Dinsmore as a teen involved: ‘keeping a cool head, and not letting one’s assailants get you out of a public space, and try to escape.’
Reiterated the student, recalling her mother’s advice, ‘If they get you out of the public eye, they’re going to do something worse to you and shoot you anyway,’
Adding, ‘I was thinking somehow I have to get out of this,’
‘Can I crash the car? No, because it might knock me out and not them. Can I pull over or something? I have to get away from them.’
And that’s when Dinsmore sprung into action, earning her the moniker of ‘James Bond’ from task police force.
Realizing it was now or never, Dinsmore unbuckled her seatbelt at the ATM and left it off, hoping the teens wouldn’t notice the alarm.
As she drove toward the ‘auntie’s’ house, Dinsmore feigned confusion and intentionally missed a turn that the abductors told her to take.
As they shouted at her to pull over, she threw the car into neutral and jumped out at about 35mph.
Dinsmore did a roll on the asphalt and jumped up, sprinting away from the car as the confused youths struggled to figure out how to stop the vehicle.
Told Dinsmore into the open space, ‘I just screamed: “Call 911! Call 911! Someone just kidnapped me and threatened to shoot me!”‘
Luckily the first car that passed was a woman who called police immediately and took Dinsmore to safety.
Wrote the student in a Facebook post hours later, ‘The only reason I wasn’t raped and most likely killed was because I kept my head and jumped out of my own moving vehicle on a busy street to get away,’
Adding, ‘Thank you to the kind woman who heard my screaming and stopped her care for me and to Richland PD for responding instantly and giving me my new nickname, James Bond.’
Dinsmore says that she hopes to finish her criminal justice degree and one day become an FBI agent. Do you suppose?
In the aftermath of Dinsmore’s near abduction, Sheriff Leon Lott said that the suspects were tied to a string of crimes in the area that police believe were racially motivated.
‘This was a crime spree. They would not have stopped,’ Lott said.
The crime spree at the hand of the youths initially targeted food delivery drivers for robbery late at night, before escalated to carjackings and kidnappings.
The sheriff said that one victim, who was African-American, told investigators she was released by the suspects when they found out she was not white.
Jordan’s abductors are set to face a swath of charges in the coming days.
