DALLAS – Dallas police have issued photographs of two of the four suspects who kidnapped a man at gunpoint near an Oak Lawn ATM machine and had him pull out money at other ATMs across Dallas and Irving.

The four suspects picked Rudolph Dinwiddie up at a drive-through ATM machine in the 3900 block of Cedar Springs Road on September 3. According to a police report, three suspects approached Dinwiddie, one of whom carried a modified sub-machine gun, and ordered him to cooperate or be killed.

The three forced him into the back seat of a car driven by a fourth suspect. Dinwiddie was bound with duct tape and zip ties while one of the kidnappers focused a gun at his forehead. 

The suspects took Dinwiddie's wallet and keys from his pockets. They ordered him to show where he parked his car and then used his credit card to fill up their vehicle at a nearby gas station. 

The kidnappers then used Dinwiddie's PIN number to withdraw cash from ATM machines in Dallas and Irving. They dumped him in a vacant lot at 1440 Lindy Ln. in Irving and fled the scene.

Dinwiddie suffered abrasions to his hands and legs where he was bound. He was treated at Colombia Medical Hospital in Irving and released.

Dallas police identified two the suspects as, "a Latin female wearing a light colored shirt at one of the ATM’s and a Latin male wearing a dark blue shirt with light colored shorts, approximately 5’9, 185 pounds." The other two suspects are men, police say. 

If you can identify anyone involved, you’re asked to call Det. Scoggins of the Crimes Against Persons Robbery Unit at 214.671.3658.
