Scottsdale Man Robbed, Forced To Withdraw From ATM After Suspects Break Into His Home While He Was On A Date
Scottsdale police are investigating a home invasion-style robbery that resulted in the suspects forcing the victim to withdraw cash from the ATM.
The man was robbed after meeting up with a woman for dinner and drinks earlier on Wednesday evening. The two agreed to return to the man’s home. Early Wednesday morning, around 2 a.m. near Pima and Westland roads in north Scottsdale, police reports state that multiple suspects forcefully entered the man’s home. They robbed him of money and his credit cards, and forced him into his own vehicle in which he was driven to an ATM where they made him withdraw money. Police reports detail that the woman left the scene in her car, and it appears she was part of the scheme.
The suspect’s dropped the man off at a Walmart near Loop 101 and Frank Lloyd Wright Boulevard and drove off in the victim’s car.
During the robbery, the man was hit over the head but is expected to be OK.
