Nikita was a typical excited 18-year old girl, excited to be going out on a date with a boy from her school. The two had connected online. Only, as shown on "Dates From Hell" (Wed., 10 p.m. ET on ID), the guy who picked her up turned out not to be the guy from her school at all.
He then locked her in the car with him and took off in a direction she didn't know. Nikita said she'd been date raped before, and the terror of that experience happening again spurred her into action. First, she tried calling the police, but they weren't able to pinpoint which car she was calling from on the busy highway at night.
The 911 call then recorded her next desperate move. "I’m going to jump out the window," Nikita is heard saying. "I’m going to jump!" And so she did.
The man had told Nikita his name, Willian. And because it's such an unusual name, they were able to track him down. Unfortunately, without any hard evidence to back Nikita's story, they had to let him go.
Nikita has since moved on -- she's now engaged to a different man -- but urges people to be cautious of people they meet online.
"Dates From Hell" chronicles more frightening true tales every Wednesday at 10 p.m. ET on ID.
