A 17-year-old girl was taken from a parking lot early Thursday in south Fort Worth after her boyfriend was assaulted and robbed by three men.

Police have located a teen originally believed to have been kidnapped from a parking lot in south Fort Worth early Thursday, saying they now believe she was an accomplice in the robbery that took place at the same time, police said.

The girl was safe, police spokesman Officer Jimmy Pollozani said. No arrests have been made and police are still investigating, he said.

Officers went to the 6100 block of Vega Drive to investigate at about 3:30 a.m., and learned that three men had assaulted and robbed an 18-year-old man in a parking lot, Pollozani said.

According to the original report, she was still in the car when the robbery and assault took place. The suspects got in with her and had her drive away in a green Hyundai Sonata, Pollozani said.

The boyfriend’s cellphone was still in the vehicle, so officers tracked it and found it dumped in south Fort Worth off Farm Road 1187, Pollozani said, but they didn’t find the vehicle or girl at that time.

Fort Worth Police and the Tarrant County Sheriff's Office are looking for these 10 fugitives. Crime Stoppers will pay up to $1,000 for information leading to an arrest. Call 817-469-8477.
