Police Seek Help in Identifying Robbery/Kidnap Suspects

The Sacramento Police Department is asking the community's help in identifying three suspects wanted for robbery and kidnapping. 

On January 27, 2012, at 10:00 p.m., a male victim walked up to an ATM at the Chase Bank in the 1900 block of Arden Way.  A female, Black in her late 20s approached the victim on foot and made a comment (see suspect photos below).  A second suspect, described as a male, Black in his mid-20s, grabbed the victim from behind and forced him into the backseat of an awaiting vehicle.   A third suspect, male Black adult, was seated in the front passenger's seat. 

The suspects drove the victim to the Safe Credit Union, located in the 4600 block of Watt Avenue, where they forced the victim to withdraw money from his account.  The suspects left the victim at the scene and later returned to the Chase Bank to make an additional withdrawal.

The female was further described as having a dark complexion, 6'0", 180 pounds, dark hair pulled back into a ponytail, wearing a dark jean jacket and a skirt.  The second suspect had a dark complexion, 5'8", 160 pounds, fade haircut and wearing a dark hooded sweatshirt.  The suspect vehicle was described as an older 1990s dark burgundy, American-made, four door vehicle.

The Sacramento Police Department urges anyone with information pertaining to this crime to contact the dispatch center at (916) 264-5471 or Crime Alert at (916) 443-HELP (4357) or text in a tip to 274637 (CRIMES). Enter SACTIP followed by the tip information.  Callers can remain anonymous and may be eligible for a reward of up to $1,000.
