WOOD VILLAGE, OR (KPTV) -

A Washington woman kidnapped by three teens and locked in the trunk of her car managed to escape and find help at a Walmart store in Wood Village, according to the Multnomah County Sheriff's Office.

Deputies responded to the store at 23500 N.E. Sandy Blvd. at 1:15 a.m. Tuesday after an employee called 911.

The worker told dispatchers an elderly woman came into the store and reported she had been kidnapped from her home in Kennewick, Washington.

Deputies arrived and contacted the 86-year-old victim, who told deputies she was taken from her home by three unknown people and put in the trunk of her car.

She said she was able to escape when the car stopped at the Walmart store and the suspects left her alone in the parking lot.

Deputies and a K-9 team searched the area, but did not immediately locate the suspects.

At 9:10 a.m., a detective spotted three people at a gas station on the 2500 block of Northeast 238th Drive matching the description of the suspects provided by the woman.

Additional deputies were called to the scene and the three suspects were taken into custody. Deputies said the suspects are a 15-year-old boy, a 16-year-old boy and a 14-year-old girl.

MCSO confirmed the victim is a great grandmother to one of the suspects.

Their names have not been released and deputies did not reveal a possible motive for the kidnapping.

The three teens were booked in the Donald E. Long Juvenile Detention Center.

Deputies said the victim was not physically injured.
