Three men abducted a Springfield man from outside his home, forced him to withdraw money from ATMs, and left him in the trunk of his car early Wednesday morning, according to the Fairfax County Police Department.
Around 1:30 a.m., the 22-year-old victim was leaving his home on the 6100 block of Cumberland Avenue, near the Concord Shopping Center and Springfield Plaza. Three men with their faces covered approached him, demanding that he get into his own car at gunpoint.
The robbers drove the man to two banks, where they made him withdraw cash from the ATMs.
The robbers then forced the man into the trunk of his car and drove the car to Piedmont Place near Braddock Road in the Annandale area. One suspect opened the trunk, cut the victim with a knife and told him not to get out of the trunk until the suspects had left.
When the victim eventually got out of the trunk, his abductors were gone. Police say his injury from the knife was not life-threatening.
The suspects are described as black males between 18 and 25 years old. They were wearing hooded jackets. All three had their faces covered with masks or cloth.
The vehicle involved was a 1998 red Honda.
