MURFREESBORO, Tenn. – Police in Murfreesboro need help identifying two women who allegedly kidnapped a woman and forced her to withdraw $8,000 from her bank account.
Murfreesboro Police said the 60-year-old victim came to the Police Department around 2:15 p.m. Thursday to report that she had been kidnapped at gunpoint from the parking lot of the K-Mart on NW Broad Street around noon.
The woman from Antioch told police that two women forced her to drive to the SunTrust Bank on Heritage Park Drive and withdraw $8,000 in cash.
The victim then told investigators she drove the two women back to the K-mart, where they got out of her vehicle. She then drove to Nashville and told her family, who drove her back to Murfreesboro to report the alleged crime.
