IRVING (KRLD) - Irving Police are investigating a kidnapping and robbery that occurred on Monday in the 1000 block of Hidden Ridge.

Police say a woman was sitting in her parked vehicle when the suspect got into the back seat of her car. The suspect forced the victim to drive around the Dallas area telling her he needed money and threatened to shoot her. After more than an hour, the victim was told to drive back to Irving and find an ATM. 

"When the woman pulled up to an ATM she saw her chance and ran from the car. The suspect grabbed her credit cards and took off on foot," says James McLellan with Irving police.

Detectives have identified the suspect as 29-year-old Albert Lee Sell of Cisco, Texas, and have issued a warrant for his arrest. The suspect also has an outstanding warrant from Brown County for Evading Arrest and warrants from Eastland County for Aggravated Assault.
