Aaron Arias, 19, and Jamal Harris, 17, are two best friends from Seagoville, Texas who never thought that one day, they would become heroes – especially after stumbling upon an unusual scene.

The two friends were driving through Kaufman County, Texas, near Dallas, when they noticed a good looking woman in the backseat of a car. They pulled up to her car, and instantly felt that something was off. The woman appeared to be mouthing the words, “Help me.”

Aaron immediately called 9-1-1.

It turns out, the 25-year-old woman had been leaving an office party in Downtown Dallas when 37-year-old Charles Atkins Lewis kidnapped her at gunpoint, forcing her into his car and driving off.

Aaron and Jamal’s phone call led the police straight to the woman and her kidnapper, and Lewis has since been charged with aggravated kidnapping and aggravated robbery.

Aaron and Jamal, who love to play video games and are big fans of superheroes (Aaron has a Deadpool tattoo on his arm and Jamel has a Flash tattoo on his abdomen,) were overjoyed to hear that the woman was uninjured.
