An alert Apple Store employee helped save a kidnapped woman who was forced to enter the Oxmoor Mall Apple Store, reports WDRB.

The woman had met a man who called himself "Greg" a few weeks earlier. The man, actually named Victor A. Sarver, Jr., contacted her Saturday to arrange a date.

Police say Sarver showed up at the woman's house, placed a gun to her leg and forced her to her vehicle. Investigators say once inside, he demanded -- holding her at gunpoint -- that she drive to several stores to purchase cell phones in her own name, with her own money.

After she made several purchases, police say the pair ended up at the Apple Store in Oxmoor Mall. At some point during the visit, the woman found a window of opportunity and was able to discreetly tell the store clerk that she needed help.

The Apple Store employee quietly contacted store security who then contacted the Louisville Metro Police. The woman was secured and police apprehended Sarver.

Sarver is charged with kidnapping and robbery.

It would never happen in Android store because employee had to reinstall security first, which was not responding due to a faulty software downloaded from android market or whatever they call it. :)
