The LAPD are investigating an incident involving a brief kidnapping and an ATM robbery reported in the vicinity of Pico Boulevard and Bronson Avenue on January 11th. The victim, a woman who was parking in a dim-lit covered garage, was approached by a man who covered her mouth, entered her vehicle, and led her to believe he had a gun. He forced her to drive to an ATM and take out money, then drop him off near Normandie Boulevard and 30th Street.

The victim kept a portion of his face concealed with a dark-colored shirt during the encounter. He is described as an African American about 5 feet 8 inches tall and weighing 170 pounds. He was wearing a black jacket, grey hooded sweatshirt, grey baggy sweat pants and dark-colored work boots.
