Man Forced To Tie Up Wife Then Abducted And Robbed


A man shoveling his snow Sunday was forced inside his home to tie up his wife before being taken to a nearby ATM.

Police say it happened on the Southwest side of Colorado Springs, on the 4900 Block of Farthing Drive.

Authorities say a black male in his 20s, wearing a thin ski mask, approached the victim at his home, while he was shoveling snow just before 6:30 p.m.

The suspect was reportedly helped by another person, driving a white SUV-type vehicle. They got away with an undisclosed amount of cash.

The victim, who was found shortly after the crime, was not seriously injured. The police investigation is ongoing.

    These punks better be caught. Approach the wrong person next time and you may not be so lucky.
