A Biloxi woman escaped from a terrifying situation Tuesday after a man tried to kidnap her from her apartment complex on Debuys Road.

Biloxi police Lt. Chris DeBack said Devoriae Rayshawn Martin, 20, is facing charges of robbery and attempted kidnapping.

DeBack said Martin approached the victim in the parking lot of her apartment complex after she arrived home and got out of her vehicle. Martin allegedly tried to force the woman back into her vehicle, saying she was going with him.

DeBack said the woman was able to get away, but Martin fled the scene with some of her possessions.

Martin was arrested at his workplace Friday without incident. He was booked into the Harrison County Jail where he was held on a $75,000 bond.
