COLUMBIA, SC (WIS) -

Columbia Police have released surveillance photos of two men they are searching for in connection with a kidnapping and robbery.

Police say last month a man responded to an online advertisement for the sale of a cell phone and coordinated a meeting place with the person purporting to sell the phone. When the man arrived at the arranged meeting place, he told police he saw three men waiting for him inside a vehicle in the 5400 block of Forest Drive.

When the man entered the vehicle, he told police at least one of the men pointed a gun at him and they drove to a nearby ATM where they tried to get him to withdraw money from his bank account. When the man refused, he told police he was physically attacked. The victim complied and one of the men stole money from his account.

The victim told police the men drove him to Forest Acres, where they dropped him off.

Photos of two of the suspects are attached to this story. If you recognize these men or know anything about the crime, call Crimestoppers at 1-888-Crime-SC.
