Employee kidnapped taken to CU for robbery
FORT WAYNE, Ind. (8/29/12)--A Fort Wayne, Ind., credit union employee was allegedly kidnapped from her home Monday evening and taken to the credit union, where suspects forced her to provide them access to cash before leaving the scene with her car.

The employee was reportedly ambushed, blindfolded and restrained inside her home by two black men, who took the employee and her car to Freedom Financial CU (indiananewscenter.com Aug. 28). After forcing her inside and gaining access to cash, the suspects fled in the woman's car, leaving her at the credit union.

Her car was recovered later in Fort Wayne.

She was not reported injured.
