Woman abducted in Logan Square, forced to get money from ATMs

CHICAGO (STMW) - A California woman abducted in Logan Square on Thursday night was driven around to ATMs and forced to withdraw money, and only released when her debit card quit working.

The 32-year-old told police she was in the 2400 block of North Fairfield just after 11 p.m. when she was approached by a young couple, though she was not sure if they were teenagers or adults, a statement from Hammond, Ind., police said.

The male suspect told the woman “she was going to get in his car,” a black sedan, police said. When she refused, he said, “Don’t make me do this,” and displayed the handle of what looked like a gun. The female suspect also displayed what looked liked a gun and they forced the victim into the car.

She was forced to go to several ATMs and withdraw money, but when the card did not work at several ATMs, which the victim thought were in Chicago, she was driven to Indiana and forced out of the vehicle in the 5600 block of Calumet Avenue in Hammond, just after midnight, police said.

The suspects also stole her iPad, iPhone and credit cards, but the woman was not injured, police said.

Anyone with information should call police at (219) 852-2981.
