L.A. Bank Robbers Strap 'Bomb' to Manager, Order Her to Rob Bank

Two masked criminals kidnapped a bank manager, strapped what they said were explosives to her stomach and ordered her to rob the bank, Los Angeles police said today.

The woman was allegedly abducted on Tuesday night and held overnight, according to ABC News' Los Angeles affiliate KABC. She was taken to the Bank of America where she worked around 8:30 a.m. today and instructed to rob it.

"A device was strapped to the woman's body," said Capt. Mike Parker of the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department. "She was told that it was explosives and she was ordered to go into the bank, take out all the money. She did do that in fear for her life."

"While she was inside the bank, there were other employees present. She explained to them what was happening," Parker said. "She took the money out of the bank and threw it out the door to the bank robbers."

The ski mask wearing thieves fled with the money in a two-door car, possibly a white Kia, according to KABC.
