A Best Buy employee arriving for work Tuesday morning was kidnapped, carjacked and robbed in the southwest Las Vegas Valley.

Shortly before 6 a.m., a man who had just arrived for his shift was confronted by two men in the parking lot of the Best Buy at 6950 Arroyo Crossing, near the 215 Beltway and South Rainbow Boulevard. Police said at least one of the men was armed with a handgun.

The suspects forced the man into his vehicle and made him drive to an ATM on the 7000 block of South Rainbow Boulevard, where he withdrew an unknown amount of money, Metropolitan Police Department spokesman Larry Hadfield said. The two men then instructed the victim to drive to a convenience store at 4030 W. Charleston Blvd., where they told him to get out of his vehicle.

Police said the suspects fled north on Hinson Street in the man’s car, a Dodge four-door sedan.

The man was not injured, police said.

No other details were immediately available, but Hadfield said police were looking for the two suspects as of 10 a.m. Tuesday.

Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 702-385-5555.
