Police are seeking the public’s help in finding a man who robbed and kidnapped a woman at an ATM in north Arlington and have released a surveillance video of the crime.

In footage captured Jan. 14 outside a Wells Fargo bank in the 2000 block of North Collins Street, the robber is seen pointing a gun at a woman in her car, then forcing her to get in the trunk, Sgt. Jeffrey Houston, an Arlington police spokesman, said in a news release.

The man drove around for a couple of hours and stopped in Euless. After he walked away from the car for a few minutes, the woman got out of the trunk and ran to a QuikTrip at South Industrial Boulevard and Texas 10.

In the video, the young man is seen approaching the woman at 1 minute and 36 seconds. At 2 minutes and 34 seconds, he looks straight at the camera.

Robbery detectives continue to investigate but have yet to find the man.

“Detectives hope that providing this video in addition to the suspect photos previously released that they will be able to identify the man responsible,” Houston said.

This report includes material from the Star-Telegram archives.
