A woman leaving work in Walnut Creek Wednesday night was kidnapped by two men who forced her to withdraw money from various ATMs before abandoning her in the Oakland Hills, Walnut Creek police said. The 57-year-old woman was abducted as she was leaving her work place at the Shadelands Business Park in Walnut Creek around 7:30 p.m., police said. She was walking to her car in the business center’s empty parking lot when two suspects ran up to her and forced her into her car, tied her up and blindfolded her.
The woman was driven to various locations to get money from ATMs before the suspects drove her to an isolated area in the Oakland Hills, police said. The suspects left and got away in a smaller, older dark-colored pickup truck, possibly a Toyota, with a loud muffler, police said. The victim was then able to free herself and call 911. Oakland police responded and sought medical attention for her, before handing the investigation over to Walnut Creek police.
The suspects were described as two white men in their early 20s. One stood about 5 feet 11 inches, weighed about 185 pounds with broad shoulders and short dark hair. He was last seen wearing a light colored T-shirt under a black zip-up collared shirt, and jeans. The other suspect was about 5 feet 9 inches, with a slight build weighing about 150 pounds. He was last seen wearing a mask, a black hooded sweatshirt with the hood on and jeans.
