WHEATON, Md. (AP) — Montgomery County police say a 75-year-old man was kidnapped and forced to take money from bank machines.

It happened Wednesday about 3 p.m. in the parking lot of the Giant in Wheaton. Police say the victim was approached by a man armed with a sharp object, possibly a box cutter.

The victim was forced into his own car and the robber drove. They drove to several ATMs and the victim was able to get cash.

The robber drove to a Metro station and fled the car on foot. The victim was not hurt.
