According to the old lady, she was told something terrible would happen to her if she did not get in the car. While inside the vehicle, the assailant demanded a sum of $10,000 and asked her to withdraw from her account.

The suspects then mentioned that they would give her $45,000 in return. They reportedly drove her to her bank, where she withdrew the said amount. The old woman did not inform the cashier that she was under duress.

In fear of her life, she kept quiet to avoid escalating the situation. She went back to the ladies in the car and handed the money over. The suspects reportedly copied her bank details.

The Anne Arundel County Police also had a case of robbery and the attempted kidnap of a woman.
