Kidnapped for directions

Three gun-toting goons hijacked a woman’s 2004 Mercedes Benz while she was inside it on May 6, refusing to let her go until she directed them to Bedford-Stuyvesant.

The woman said that she was sitting behind the wheel of the luxury car as she waited for her friend on E. 17th Street near Ditmas Avenue when the three suspects stormed up and pulled a gun on her.

“You know what this is,” one of the men said as they robbed the woman of her cash, her friend’s wallet and her jewelry.

All three then jumped into the car, ordering the woman to slide over to the passenger seat, threatening to shoot her if she started “acting up.”

They then started driving around the neighborhood. When the woman asked them to release her, they said they would only when she told them how to get to Bedford-Stuyvesant.

The joyride came to a quick close, however, when a cop car drove by. Scared of being noticed, the three thugs pulled over, jumped out of the car and ran off.

Police said that two of the men, identified as Brian Rollock and Steven Nunez, both 18, were taken into custody after a brief investigation and charged with robbery and kidnapping.
