CMU Abduction: Children Receive Life-Saving Award

MOUNT PLEASANT, Mich. -The two children who helped a Central Michigan University student by letting her into their home have received a life-saving award at the Isabella County Board of Commissioners meeting.

James and Acelin Persyn helped save the woman who was kidnapped from the Student Activity Center on CMU’s campus on Jan. 16.

The woman managed to escape her assailant, Eric Ramsey, and ran to the Persyn home on Mission Street.

The two children were home alone when the woman started banging on the door. All though the kids were told to never answer the door for strangers, their instincts told them they should.

After letting the woman inside the home, they all hid in a bathroom together and called 911. All the while, Ramsey was just outside with a gas can, attempting to set the house on fire.

Ramsey eventually left. He was later killed by police after he rammed a squad car.
