Police: Man abducted in Wheaton, forced to withdraw cash

A 60-year-old man was abducted from a Wheaton grocery store and forced to withdraw cash at various locations before he was left in Northwest Washington, authorities said.

Montomery County police said they think the kidnapper, who had a sharp object, was the same man they are seeking in a similar incident that occurred Nov. 23.

Saturday’s abduction occurred near the same Giant Food store, in the 2900 block of University Boulevard West, where last week’s abduction occurred. Last week’s victim was also taken to ATMs to get cash.

Police learned of Saturday’s incident after the victim was released and phoned from a gas station on Blair Road NW..

Police said the abductor was a black man between 35 and 45, 5 feet 11 to 6 feet , between 175 and 180 pounds.
