LAS VEGAS, NV. (THECOUNT) — A video has emerged showing the moment Las Vegas woman, Elizabeth Suarez, jumped from a moving vehicle to escape a man she claims kidnapped and robbed her.
Suarez, whose age was not provided, says she was visiting Park MGM in July when she stepped into a waiting vehicle she mistakenly thought was an Uber ride she’d earlier summoned.

While inside the moving vehicle, Suarez claims she received a call from the real Uber driver, who was trying to locate her at the MGM.
“My heart sank. Because I knew I was in the wrong car. I have no idea who this guy is, I’m in trouble.”
Suarez says she played off the phone call to the fake Uber driver and then asked him to let her out of the vehicle. She says the man refused and instead began to speed up.
“And I thought well if he’s gonna kidnap me, what… You know… Rape? Kill me? Anything! All these thoughts are going in my head. And I froze.”
Instead of dialing 911, and without further assessment of her situation, Suarez claims, she threw her wallet at the rogue driver, and inexplicably leapt from the moving vehicle.
“That’s when I open the car door and it’s unlocked and I just jump out without thinking.
She suffered a serious head injury, a fractured wrist and badly broken ankle as a result of her ejecting from the vehicle.
It is unclear if the driver actually demanded any items from Suarez, although, a solo burglary charge would later be filed against him by Metro, who declined to charge him with “kidnapping,” or anything else in the incident.
Pix11 obtained a video which shows him pulling into a shopping center and Suarez bailing out of the vehicle.
Park MGM declined to provide their surveillance video of the woman being picked up, claiming they have no record of anyone documenting a security report for a crime committed on their property. That request would have stemmed from investigators and/ or Suarez via a court appointed representative.
