SPRINGFIELD, Va. (CBSDC) — A 22-year-old man was abducted at gunpoint and forced to withdraw cash from multiple ATMs in Springfield recently.
Police say the man was updated around 1:30 a.m. on May 9 in the 6100 block of Cumberland Avenue.
He was approached by three men as he was leaving his home. One of the suspects displayed a handgun and forced the victim into his own 1998 Honda four-door vehicle. The three men also entered the vehicle and drove the victim to two ATMs and forced him to withdraw cash.
He was then driven to an undisclosed location and forced into the trunk of the car. The suspects then drove around a little longer before stopping in the area of Piedmont Place, near Braddock Road. They then opened the trunk and cut the victim with a knife before instructing him to remain inside the vehicle until they had safely escaped the area.
The victim’s injuries were described as slight and non-life threatening.
Authorities describe the suspects as black males between 18 and 25 years of age. All three were wearing hooded jackets. Two of the men were wearing masks while the third covered his face with a cloth.
Fairfax County Police have released a photo of a suspect vehicle in this case. The photo was taken at Commerce Street Plaza of a vehicle possibly following the victim’s vehicle during the crime.
