CALIFORNIA, Md. – Authorities in Maryland say two men kidnapped a woman and her two young children, then forced the woman to steal money from a bank where she worked.
Sheriff's spokeswoman Cindy Allen says two men clad in camouflage and ski masks approached a woman as she was leaving her home in Lusby this morning. The men displayed a gun and forced her and her two young children into her car.
They drove about 10 miles to a PNC Bank and forced the woman to retrieve an undisclosed amount of cash. The men then dropped the woman and her children off at a nearby school, where the woman called authorities.
The men abandoned the vehicle at a nearby drugstore. Officials say they also are searching for another vehicle that had been near the bank. Officials are also searching for a possible third suspect.
Authorities say the bank wasn't open at the time. It's unclear if the men knew the woman.
