A teen girl is being lauded as a hero after she heard screams coming from the trunk of a car parked on a suburban street in New Jersey — and helped lead cops to discover a bound, kidnapped man locked away for hours inside.
Kayla Rose, 17, of Irvington was out walking her dog, a bichon-poodle mix named Milkshake, before school Thursday at around 7 a.m. when she heard “knocking and scratching” coming from the trunk of a black Nissan parked on her block.
“I moved closer and said, ‘Hello?’” Rose recalled, adding that’s when she heard a man reply back, ‘Hello? I need some help!’ ”
Rose said she “got scared” and “nervous,” so “I got help quick.”
“I went to my neighbor across the street and they called the police,” Rose said, noting, “Nothing like this happens over here.”
Rose also told her mom, Marie Banks, what she discovered.
“She said it looked like she was in a horror movie,” Banks said.
The neighbor who called the cops, Joe Bollaro, 70, tried to get the trapped man out of the car using a crow bar to no avail.
“All I was doing was bending the metal,” Bollaro said.
“I asked if he could breathe,” said Bollaro. “He said he could. I told him to ‘hang on, the police and fire department are on the way.”
