Police seek suspects after woman kidnapped from DC bus stop

WASHINGTON — A woman told police two suspects kidnapped her from a bus stop in D.C.’s Petworth neighborhood Tuesday afternoon, drove her to her residence in Maryland and then robbed her.

A woman told police that around 1 p.m. Tuesday she was waiting for a bus at the corner of New Hampshire Avenue and Georgia Avenue in Northwest when two men approached her. The men spoke with her and then told her to come with them, threatening to harm her if she didn’t comply.

The men forced her into a vehicle, asked her where she lived and then drove to her Hyattsville, Maryland residence, she told police. When they arrived, the suspects stole valuables and cash from the residence and then fled, the victim told police.

The woman was not injured during the incident.

Police are looking for two suspects driving a silver SUV, possibly a Nissan Pathfinder.

One of the suspects is described as a Hispanic man about 40 years old and 5 feet, 9 inches tall. He wore a long sleeve gray and white Hawaiian-style shirt, dark bluejeans and a black watch at the time of the crime.

The other suspect is described as a Hispanic man between 20 and 25 years old and 5 feet, 3 inches tall. He has a light complexion and wore a short-sleeve green plaid shirt and bluejeans.
