A Pikesville resident was abducted from his home last night by a man who forced him to withdraw money from a 24-hour teller machine in the city, Baltimore County police said.

Lt. Rick Landsman of the Garrison District said the victim, Stanley N. Block, 47, of the 2700 block of Willow Glen Drive, was not injured.

Mr. Block told police he was confronted about 8:30 p.m. in a first-floor hallway by a man who implied he was armed.

Police said Mr. Block was forced to drive to Mondawmin Mall in Northwest Baltimore and ordered to stop at an automated teller machine. He withdrew an undisclosed sum and gave it to the man.

The victim then drove the man to Gwynns Fall Parkway and Dukeland Street, where he fled on foot.

The suspect was described as a black man in his 20s, more than 6-feet tall, and about 200 pounds. He was wearing a white sweat suit.
