The ‘90s star recounted her alleged scary experience in Texas to her Instagram followers over the weekend by sharing a video she sent to her brother right after the altercation.

"I think I almost got snatched up," she began her video.

Campbell claimed she was waiting outside for a taxi, since they didn't have Uber where she was filming, when a "sketchy" van pulled up. She noted she was given the number of the apparent taxi company from a guy who worked at the front desk of a hotel.

A guy in the back of the van jumped out of the car and demanded that she get in, according to Campbell.

The 53-year-old claimed she repeatedly told the men "no" to avoid being snatched up and refused to get in after the driver told her she can sit in the passenger seat.

"I'm not getting in that f**king car, f** y'all. Get the f**k out of here," she recalled of what she allegedly told the men.

In Campbell's caption, she explained she went back to the front desk after the alleged incident and the guy who gave her the number wasn't there. When she asked the woman working at the desk where the man was, she reportedly responded, "Why would he give you this number? This isn't the normal number."

"It was a set up for real," Campbell declared in her caption.

In light of Campbell's claims, the Brownsville Police Department released a statement that read: “The Brownsville Police Department is committed to providing proactive, professional, and effective public safety. Regrettably, our department became aware of Ms. Campbell’s ordeal via social media and not through traditional reporting means as would be expected from a victim of an attempted heinous crime.”

“Upon reviewing facts presented by Ms. Campbell in her video, BPD investigators quickly launched an investigation as such cases are not the norm in our city,” they added.

The authorities explained, "Through numerous interviews and reviews of security camera footage, we could not validate Ms. Campbell's stay in Brownsville hotels nor any other claims made in the video."

The department takes “human trafficking and incidents such as the one Ms. Campbell reported seriously and welcomes her to reach out to us to investigate further," the statement concluded.

Campbell's rep later responded to the police department's statement, explaining the incident didn't happen in Brownsville but rather nearby in a hotel at South Padre Island, Radar reported. The local police in that city have yet to comment on the alleged scare nor confirm whether the actress called them to report the attempted crime.

Meanwhile, according to the outlet, one follower backed the Little Shop of Horrors star, writing: "Yes sis they were about to get you. [I] just made 6 rescues this week and they ALL gave the same description."
