Police are hunting for two suspects who snatched a woman from a D.C. bus stop in broad daylight and forced her to drive to her Maryland home for a robbery.

The kidnapping occurred at roughly 1 p.m. Tuesday afternoon on the corner of New Hampshire Avenue and Georgia Avenue in Northwest, D.C. near the Petworth Metro station. The kidnappers forced the unidentified woman to get in a car with them and then made her drive them to her apartment in Hyattsville, Md. Once at her home, the suspects stole various valuables and cash before fleeing the scene, reports NBC Washington.

The woman did not suffer any injuries during the kidnapping and subsequent robbery. Police believe the suspects were driving a silver SUV thought to be a Nissan Pathfinder.

Police describe the first suspect as a roughly 40-year-old Hispanic male wearing a long-sleeve shirt with a Hawaiian style t-shirt and standing just under six feet. The second suspect is a Hispanic male thought to be between 20 to 25 years old, wearing a green plaid shirt and standing at 5’3”.

The men initially approached the victim from inside their vehicle and engaged the woman in conversation. The suspects then threatened her with injury if she did not get into the car with them, reports WJLA.

The incident follows two different kidnappings from D.C. bus stops in both the Northwest and Northeast portions of the city in August. Both victims were sexually assaulted by their attackers, one for several days before she managed to escape and call authorities.
