Editor abducted, driven to ATM

January 27, 1994|By Staff Report

A group of men abducted an editor for The Sun outside his Federal Hill home, placed a cloth hood over his head and drove him to an ATM where they withdrew $300 using his bank card, police said.

James S. Keat, 64, had parked his car in the 300 block of E. Hamburg St. about 11:30 p.m. Tuesday when he was confronted by the men, one of whom had what appeared to be a sawed-off shotgun, police said.

With his head covered by the hood, Mr. Keat was driven to a bank machine at an unknown location and forced to divulge his bank card number, police said. The men withdrew the cash and took Mr. Keat's gold wedding band, watch and wallet containing credit cards, police said.

The robbers then drove Mr. Keat near the corner of Greenmount Avenue and Madison Street and let him out of the car. He was not injured, police said.
