Newser – Two masked men kidnapped a Bank of America manager, strapped what they said was a bomb to her, and threatened to detonate it if she didn’t rob her bank for them yesterday. She was driven to the bank after her kidnapping the previous night, and “was ordered to take out all the money. She did do that in fear for her life,” says a spokesman for the LA County Sheriff’s Department.
But she also told co-workers what had happened, then flung the money out the door to her kidnappers, who fled in a waiting car, say police. As of late last night, they were still on the loose.
