A Best Buy worker was approached by two men as he was heading in to work on Tuesday morning. 

It happened in the parking lot of the Best Buy at 6950 Arroyo Crossing Parkway around 6 a.m. Two people forced the man at gunpoint to drive to a nearby Bank of America.

The two men then forced the victim to withdraw money from an ATM and then made him drive to a convenience store at 4030 W. Charleston Blvd.

At the store, the two men made the victim get out of the car. The clerk told 13 Action News the men had told him to buy them cigarettes and that he seemed nervous inside, and kept looking outside the window.

Eventually, the suspects drove off with his car, and the clerk helped the victim by calling 911.

The car is still missing and the suspects are still on the loose. The car is described as a Dodge Charger.
