WINTER PARK, Fla. - Testimony began Tuesday morning in the trial of the man accused of kidnapping and robbing two women in Winter Park.

The crimes were allegedly committed by Farley Curry two weeks apart outside offices on Lee Road.

Victim Teresa Bradley testified Tuesday that she came face to face with Curry and his gun.

"I saw his hand on it like this. I saw the barrel of it pointed right at my nose. I'm looking right at the end of the barrel," Bradley said.

According to prosecutors, Bradley was abducted and robbed by Curry. She was one of two women who were targeted as they arrived for work, prosecutors said.

"He said to me, 'I'm not going to rape you. I'm not going to kill you. You won't get hurt if you do what I tell you to do,'" Bradley said.

Bradley testified that she had her own gun and pointed it at Curry, but he grabbed it from her. Investigators said after driving the victim away from her office, Curry took $60 and a scratch-off lottery ticket. The ticket was a winner that prosecutors said Curry later tried to cash in at a local store.

The second victim, Erin Hindla, also testified and described the moments she was allegedly attacked by Curry.

"I was screaming for most of it, until the struggle went to the ground and he punched me in the mouth," Hindla said.

Curry's attorney insists he was not the kidnapper. Bradley testified that after looking at a police lineup, she couldn't say for sure who the assailant was.

"This was 100 percent and I wasn't 100 percent. I said, 'I'm 99 percent, but I'm not 100 percent. So, I wouldn't sign it,'" Bradley said.

Curry faces life in prison if he is convicted.
