Police search for men who kidnapped, tortured man for PIN number

Posted: Updated:

Gwinnett County Police said that a man was walking from his car after coming home from work early Wednesday morning, when two men approached him and held him up at gun point. And the night didn't end there.

Police said the men made that victim get back in his car and drive them on I-85 toward Atlanta, eventually making him pull over and get in the back seat, where authorities say the men pistol-whipped him and burned him with a cigarette lighter until he gave them his PIN number.

Police have a picture of one of the men, believed to be shown driving the victim's car, withdrawing money from a Wells Fargo ATM on Cheshire Bridge Road.

Police said the men eventually left that man in his car at an Atlanta apartment complex and fled, after keeping him captive for five hours.

Police also said the victim's brother got a phone call from the men demanding a ransom for his brother's return.

The victim was visibly injured, police said, but did not want to go to the hospital.

If you recognize the man in the security camera picture, call Crimestoppers at (404) 577 – TIPS.
