— Police say three gunmen kidnapped a bank manager from her house Friday night and drove her to the bank so they could steal money.

The woman, whose name was not released, is an assistant manager at Fort Sill National Bank, 6242 Yadkin Road.

The men forced the woman to open the bank, and they stole an undisclosed amount of money, police said. They fled the scene in a gold 1990 Acura Legend, which belonged to the woman’s son.

After they left, the woman was able to call police around 10:30 p.m.

Police later found the Acura on York Road. Authorities are still looking for the three men, who were wearing hoods when the crime was committed. No other description was available.

Anyone with information on their whereabouts should call Fayetteville police.

    Glad she's safe, but she may as well be prepared for little to no sympathy from Federal Investigators.

    Very frightening incident. I'm sure the bank manager is thankful to be alive.
