Lubbock Woman Forced to Drive to ATMs at Gunpoint
A Lubbock woman says that she was robbed by an armed suspect, and then forced to drive them to various ATMs.
The woman, who hasn't been identified, says that at around 6 p.m. on Friday, October 2nd she went inside the Bolton's at 3709 Avenue Q to purchase cigarettes. She parked at the pumps on the south side of the business before going inside the store.
She says that when she got back into her vehicle, an unidentified man wearing a face mask in the back seat of the car pulled a gun on her and demanded money. The woman wasn't able to give a description of the suspect.
KAMC News reports the woman complied and gave him the money from her wallet.
It's then said the suspect forced the woman to drive to multiple different locations to pull money out of an ATM. After that, the suspect allegedly got out of the woman's vehicle and ran away. The approximate location of the area the suspect ran away in wasn't made immediately clear.
The incident wasn't reported until Monday, October 5th at the Lubbock Police Department.
Police have not made any arrests, and don't have a description of the suspect due to him wearing a face mask.
