Norcross man kidnapped, robbed
NORCROSS - A 35-year-old Norcross man was abducted from Park Colony Apartments Saturday and forced to drive to an ATM to withdraw money.
After the victim pulled his vehicle into the apartment complex off South Norcross Tucker Road at 12:45 a.m., a maroon Honda Accord parked near him. An unidentified black man wielding a handgun ran toward the victim and demanded his wallet. The robber threatened to shoot the victim if he didn't have any money.
The victim tried to appease the robber, offering to go to an ATM and withdraw some cash. He was forced into the back seat of the Honda with the gunman and another unidentified man, who drove to an ATM in Tucker Crossroads Shopping Center.
The victim withdrew $400 and handed it over to his captors. The suspects then dropped him back off at an adjacent apartment complex. They warned the man not to call police. The suspects said they knew where he lived from looking at the information on his drivers' license.
