RALEIGH, NC - Wake County authorities are looking into a series of armed robberies and kidnappings in the last week.
Authorities say an armed man kidnapped a woman in a neighborhood Thursday night and made her drive to a nearby ATM. Investigators say the woman escaped and the gunman drove off in her car.
Last Sunday, investigators said a suspect put a gun to a woman's face, assaulted her mail friend and made off with the woman's purse. Also that day, a man whose description matched that of the assailant in the previous incident made a woman drive him in her Jeep Cherokee to a bank.
On Monday, a man forced his way into a home, held a man and woman at gunpoint and took jewelry and a laptop computer.
