The suspect held the victim at knifepoint, forced her and the child into her car, and drove them to a Wells Fargo ATM located in a parking lot off Champlain and Shepherd Avenues.

In the video, you can see the suspect get out of the car as he has the victim pull out money from the ATM.

Officers say after this, the victim convinced him to let her and the child go. He drove away in the victim's SUV
