Woman Abducted In Chicago At Gunpoint

CHICAGO (CBS) -- A California woman was abducted at gunpoint in the Logan Square neighborhood of Chicago on Thursday night, robbed and then abandoned in Northwest Indiana.

According to police, the 32-year-old, who is visiting for a wedding, was confronted by a young man and woman in the 2400 block of North Fairfield shortly after 11 p.m. and was told to get into their car, a black sedan.

When the victim resisted, the male suspect said, "Don't make me do this" and displayed what appeared to be the handle of a firearm, police said.

The young female suspect then forced the victim into the front seat of the sedan.

The victim reported that she was forced to go to several ATMs and told to withdraw money.

When the card did not work at several locations, the suspects drove the victim to Indiana.

The suspects then made the victim exit their vehicle in the 5600 block of Calumet Avenue in Hammond, about three blocks from the main police station, shortly before 1 a.m. Friday.

The suspects took the woman's iPad, credit cards, and iPhone.

The victim did not report any injury, police said.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Det. Sgt. John Suarez at 219 852 2981.
