Robbers abduct Phoenix man, try to get cash, steal cars

PHOENIX -- An early-morning crime has left a central Phoenix neighborhood feeling uneasy Thursday after four suspects forced a man to drive from ATM to ATM to get them cash.

Police said the suspects, some of whom were armed, followed a 25-year-old man to his home near Glendale and 11th avenues around 3 a.m. Once there, they took the man at gunpoint and drove to several banks trying to take out cash from ATMs.

Phoenix Police Sergeant Tommy Thompson said the group eventually returned to the home, where the men tied up the victim and his brother, 22, before ransacking the home. The brothers suffered minor injuries.

Some of the suspects drove off in the brothers' cars, one a silver Mercedes with the Arizona license plate 695 PWZ, the other a gold Lexus Arizona license plate BAG7184.

Police don't know how much, if any, money the suspects managed to get.
