ATLANTA (FOX 5 Atlanta) - A late night doughnut run turned four Georgia Tech students into kidnapping victims.
Atlanta Police told FOX 5 Monday night the male students decided to get something to eat at the Krispy Kreme on Ponce De Leon Avenue. They were approached by two men who were panhandling near the doughnut shop around 11 p.m. One of the students gave the panhandlers $5, but that apparently wasn't enough because at least one of the men begging for money then pulled a gun.
The suspects stole the students' cellphones and forced them into a car. At this point, it isn't known if the vehicle belonged to the students or robbers.
After driving to a Wells Fargo ATM, each of the students was forced to withdraw $200, bringing the total amount of stolen cash to $800.
The kidnappers continued to drive around with the students still in the vehicle. Police said when the car got near Mercedes-Benz Stadium, the students managed to jump and run for safety. None of them suffered any injuries.
Police haven't released a detailed description of the gunmen.
