CLEVELAND, Ohio (WOIO) - Cleveland Police Department is urging the community to help identify the aggravated robbers who kidnapped and assaulted a female on Oct. 12 by getting in her car, putting a gun to her head, and forcing her to drive to a bank to take out a large sum of money.
Police said a female was sitting in her 2018 orange Honda fit around 9:30 p.m on the 3400 block of Hancock Avenue when two male suspects got out of a 2011 lavender Mazda CX7 with Ohio plate HTT 9445.
One suspect came up to her driver’s side window with a gun and told her not to “freak out” and that they just wanted her money, according to police.
The suspect with the gun got into her car from the front passenger side door and asked if she had her bank card, the report said.

The victim then told the suspect that the gun looked like plastic, according to the report.
