WACO -- A dramatic morning for a woman and her two small children after her ex-boyfriend kidnapped them.
Around 5 am Thursday, Waco police tell us Darrel Stewart, 26, barged into the victims apartment and forced her and her children into her car.
While Stewart was driving East on 84 he said he was taking them somewhere to kill them.
But the woman put up a fight and was thrown out of the car, suffering from several broken bones. Stewart forced her back into the car.
When they stopped at a gas station near Mexia to get bandages for her injuries the woman jumped into the drivers seat and drove safely back to Waco. The two children were unharmed.
Stewart was picked up by police around noon at his home in Waco.
Stewart is now in the McLennan County Jail.
