ALLEN—A grandmother who was reportedly assaulted and kidnapped by her grandson Monday, escaped by jumping from a moving vehicle and running to a residence in Ada for help.

Pauline Williams, 78, Allen, was allegedly attacked by her grandson, Timothy Williams, 19, Allen, at her residence in Allen and forced to drive to Ada to cash a check, according to a report from the Ada Police Department.

The report said Allen Police Officer Ken Fraizer informed Ada officers an Allen man told Fraizer the man’s mother had been kidnapped by her grandson. She had escaped and was at a residence on Fifth Street in Ada. The owner of the Ada residence told Ada Police Officer Michael Meeks a lady came to his house and told him she had to jump from a car to get away from her grandson who attacked her, the report said. In the report, Meeks noted he observed two red marks on the side of Pauline Williams’ neck.

Pauline Williams told Meeks Timothy Williams attacked and choked her at her residence in Allen. Pauline Williams said he demanded money and had her sign a blank check, the report said. Pauline Williams said her grandson pointed a kitchen knife at her and said, “give me some money or I will kill you,” according to the report.

Pauline Williams said she came to Ada with Timothy Williams to cash the check because she was in fear for her life.
