Woman kidnapped, robbed in Buckhead

ATLANTA -

Atlanta police are looking for four men who kidnapped a woman and then robbed her early on Friday morning.

The woman, 35-year-old Rebecca Jackson, told police that the men approached her at a condominium complex at Lenox Oaks Circle in Buckhead. She says the men forced her into her car at gunpoint. Police say she told them they drove to at least one ATM withdrew money, and made other stops.

"When I opened the door, the guy was standing there with a gun to my head and told me to get in the passenger seat," Jackson told FOX 5.  "I mean, I just kind of deal with the situation I'm in. If they are going to kill me, they are going to kill me. They took $600 and my watch. I had a Gucci watch in there, whatever cards I had in there, they took that. They had guns -- I was at gunpoint the whole time."

Police say she could not identify where they took her because her head was covered.

Capt. Tim Peek of the Atlanta Police Department says they do not have a good description of the men. He says their faces were partially covered but the victim did get a brief look at the men.

Police say after robbing the woman, the men went back to where she was taken and left her with her vehicle, and they ran off.

Authorities said that this is the second kidnapping reported in Buckhead in the past nine days. They said that a 23-year-old man who lives on the same street said he was also kidnapped at gunpoint and driven around for more than 20 hours.

Police said they are beefing up patrols in the area and asking residents to be alert and report anything suspicious.
