PHOENIX (CBS5) -

Police are looking for two suspects after they kidnapped a 77-year-old woman at a Phoenix shopping center, robbed her and then set her free.

The woman had finished shopping on March 7 when she was physically assaulted and forced into her vehicle at 16th Street and Glendale Avenue, Phoenix police spokesman Sgt. Trent Crump said.

The victim was driven around for a few hours and eventually released after the suspects robbed her of her personal belongings, Crump said.

Detectives released surveillance images and video of one of the suspects using her credit card.

The victim was able to assist police in compiling a composite drawing of the primary suspect.

The first suspect is described as a black man in his 30s, 5'8" to 5'10" tall and weighing 170 pounds. He was wearing gold rim sunglasses and had tattoos on both forearms. 

The other suspect is pictured in the surveillance images. He was driving a silver or dark gray Saturn with a rear spoiler and a temporary license tag.

Anyone with information about any of these fugitives or crimes is asked to call Silent Witness at 480-WITNESS OR 480-TESTIGO.
