A woman was kidnapped and robbed as she left the Cool Springs Galleria in Williamson County Wednesday evening.
The victim told police she got into her car parked in the upper level Oasis area of the mall around 7:30 p.m. and was preparing to leave when a man slipped into her back seat, pulled out a gun and ordered her to drive him to a nearby bank.
When they arrived, the suspect ordered the woman to make an ATM withdrawal.
When the transaction was complete, he told her to return to the mall area where he ordered her from her vehicle before fleeing in it.
The victim was unharmed.
Franklin police are pursuing several leads.
The suspect is described as a young black male with a slim build, short hair and “nice teeth.”
At the time of the robbery, he was wearing a beanie type hat and jeans.
Anyone with information is urged to contact Williamson County Crime Stoppers at 615-794-4000 or Franklin police at 615-794-2513.
A $1,000 cash reward is being offered for information leading to an arrest.
