In a terrifying story out of South Lincoln, Police say a young girl was kidnapped while at an ATM late last night. She escaped and is okay, and now she wants to share her story in an exclusive interview.

This brave, 18–year–old girl's life was changed yesterday when a man tried to rob her, then he hopped in her car and forced her to drive away.

"At this moment, all I'm thinking is, I need to do something to get out of this car. I need to do something to warn this cop because this is my only chance," Mikayla said.

Mikayla said she never thought this would happen to her. But at about 1:30 this morning, she was the victim of an armed robbery and was kidnapped.

Mikayla says the suspect, 37–year–old Wayne Greve II walked up to her car at an ATM near 40th and Old Cheney and told her he needed money for his family.

But he got spooked. So she said he got in her car and made her drive away. She said Greve told her he knew someone spotted him. Lucky for Mikayla, cops pulled the car over moments later.

"All I kept saying is, he has a gun he has a gun, and so they all like attacked him. All I did was keep running and the I got into the driver's side of a cop car," she said.

Mikayla was not harmed and Greve was arrested for kidnapping, armed robbery, and use of a weapon to commit a felony.

An 18-year-old woman was kidnapped early Saturday morning at an ATM near 40th and Old Cheney Road.

Captain Joseph Wright with the Lincoln Police Department says officers were called to the area at 1:42 a.m. A passer-by described suspicious activity in the area and detailed officers on the vehicle involved.

Wright says an officer spotted the vehicle on Village Drive, a block south of Old Cheney and pulled the driver over. Wright says the 18-year-old was driving and told police that nothing was wrong. Officers were suspicious when they saw 37-year-old Wayne Greve II sitting in the passenger seat.

Once out of the car, the woman told police Greve II had a gun. Wright says it was a BB gun and that Greve II had forced his way into the woman's car and demanded she take him to another ATM to withdraw money.

Wright says while this isn't what's considered an ordinary kidnapping, it meets the criteria. Greve II was arrested for kidnapping, robbery and use of a weapon to commit a felony.
