Police seek McKinney armed robbery, kidnapping suspects

Police are looking for two armed robbers they say kidnapped a woman and then took her along on a crime spree.

Around 10:30 p.m. Wednesday, a 28-year-woman leaving a McKinney apartment was backing her car out of a parking space when a man approached her driver window, pointed a handgun at her and told her to move over to the passenger seat.

Police say the masked kidnapper got into the driver’s seat and drove away in her car with her in the passenger seat.

A second robber then followed the victim's car in another vehicle -- a blue 2009 Dodge Charger that police say was stolen the day before.

The victim and suspects are seen on surveillance video at one business. In it, the victim's face has been hidden by police.

According to the victim, for several hours, the kidnappers drove her to ATMs and businesses all over, where they either forced her to make withdrawals or took her inside and forced her to make purchases.

Just before 5 a.m. at a Bank of America ATM on North Cockrell Hill Road, the robbers demanded money from a customer.

“The suspects exited their respective vehicles and approached that man on foot,” said Mjr. Max Geron with the Dallas Police Department. “The man observed them approaching with the gun and jumped in his vehicle and fled…as he did so, one of the suspects fired shots at the man as he drove off.”

The victim wasn't hit, but was treated for cuts from glass of a shot-out window.

A short time later, the robbers drove nearly six miles to Oak Cliff Donuts on the on S. Hampton Boulevard, where the victim told police they left her in the car as they went inside the shop.

Surveillance video shows the suspects pistol-whip a customer in the head, demand money from the cash register and take the customer's wallet.

Finally, nearly 43 miles from McKinney and more than seven and a half hours later, police say the suspects released the victim in the 2300 block of W. Illinois in Dallas, where she called police.

The suspects are both described as black men in their 20s. Police say one of them is about 5-foot-7 with a stocky build.

They say he has a light complexion with bruising below one eye and fresh stitches or a cut across his lips. He wore a red bandana over his face.

As for the other suspect, police say he’s no taller than 5-foot-4.

He has a light complexion with short hair and a single gold tooth. He wore a white bandana over his face.
