Teens ‘Checking Out’ Woman Save Her Life

She mouthed “help me” from backseat of car.

Sometimes it actually pays off to be checking out a pretty woman—it may have saved one’s life. Aaron Arias, 19, and Jamal Harris, 17, were stopped at a red light in Dallas when a woman in the backseat of the car next to them caught their eye. But their interest soon turned to horror as she mouthed the words “help me.” They called the police to report a kidnapping and trailed the car until the cops arrived. Charles Atkins Lewis Jr., whom police say kidnapped the woman and forced her into his car, was arrested.
