DURHAM, NC (WNCN) – Durham Police are still searching for a man who forced a woman to drive to an ATM in September and then drove her to Chapel Hill before running away.
The incident happened on September 24, 2021, when the victim said she was leaving work and stopped at a bank on N. Gregson Street to make a deposit for her business.
She noticed a black vehicle in the parking lot that began to leave its place as she walked from the vault to an ATM, according to a search warrant obtained Wednesday.
The woman then drove home. She checked her phone while sitting in her driveway, and when she looked up, the suspect was standing in front of her car with a gun, the warrant said.
The suspect put her in the front passenger seat and then drove her to a Wells Fargo on Estes Drive in Chapel Hill. She told police that as she exited, she noticed a car that looked like the car from the bank lot.
He then made her withdraw $1,000 and then drove her to a neighborhood. He forced her to keep her head down at all times, the warrant said.
When he stopped, the suspect attempted to wipe surfaces in the car he touched with hand sanitizer. He told the woman not to report the incident to the police because he knew where she lived, documents showed.
He then took her cell phone and purse and ran away, the warrant said.
After making sure he wasn’t around, the victim used the built-in GPS in her car to get home. She then contacted a neighbor to call the police, the search warrant said.
As of Wednesday, no arrests had been made in the case.
Anyone with information is asked to call Investigator Strickland at 919-560-4440, ext. 29536 or Crimestoppers at 919-683-1200.
