OPELIKA, AL (WTVM) - An investigation continues into a possible kidnapping and robbery at an Opelika Walmart. A 58-year-old woman says two women forced her to drive them to a bank and get them cash. Opelika Police have two suspect descriptions that the victim has given them.
The victim says she was shopping in Wal-mart when one of the suspects approached her. Police say a discussion took place, and that the victim felt an object like a weapon against her back.
"She exited the store with the suspect where they encountered a second suspect. All three got into the victims vehicle and went to another location in Auburn Alabama, and from there to a bank in Lafayette," Capt. Allan Elkins, Opelika Police said.
