TEMPLE HILLS, Md. (CBSDC/AP) — The man who kidnapped another man at gunpoint at a Metro station and forced to withdraw cash from several ATMs has been identified by Metro Transit Police.

A warrant has been issued for 21-year-old Timothy Pernell Williams.

Officials say Williams was taken by train from the Naylor Road station in Temple Hills on Friday night to the Waterfront station.

Metro officials say Williams’ gun was apparently covered by a sweatshirt as they rode the train. The pair left the Waterfront station in southwest Washington and the victim was forced to withdraw money from several ATMs.

The men returned to the Waterfront station, where Metro officials say they boarded separate trains. Police say they believe that the kidnapper rode back to Naylor Road. The victim was not injured.
