"He tried to rob two other couples".

Diggs chose to speak out to help catch the person who did this to her.

But suddenly, it dawned on Diggs to use the light on her insulin pump to search for the trunk release latch she learned about watching YouTube videos.

An Avondale woman who spent hours in the trunk of her auto during a kidnapping and robbery before making a dramatic escape has now spoken publicly for the first time since her ordeal almost one week ago.

The store owner took the gun from her and assured her the man was not coming back. At some point, he moved her to the trunk of her auto and drove her to at least three different locations, using her ATM card to get cash. He said the man got frustrated and left. The suspect remains at large, but Birmingham Police Chief A.C. Roper told AL.com he's confident he will be found and brought to justice. Birmingham police officials released an image from surveillance video that shows the man's face.

A GoFundMe page has been created to help Diggs pay for moving, hospital fees and attorney costs.

As of Monday morning, the page had raised over $16,000, more than double its $7,000 goal.

Alsabah says that the woman had been cut during her abduction and that a relative brought her to get checked out by medical staff.
