It happened on the 6100 block of Cumberland Avenue, at around 1:30 a.m. Wednesday, police said.
"The victim, a 22-year-old man, was coming out of his home when he was approached by three men. One of the men displayed a handgun and forced the victim into his own vehicle, a red, 1998 Honda, four-door. All three suspects got into the vehicle as well. They drove the victim to two banks and forced him to withdraw an undisclosed amount of cash. The victim was then driven to an unknown location and forced into the trunk of his car; then driven a short distance," police said.
One of the suspects then opened the trunk and cut the victim's face slightly, police said.
"He was instructed to remain in the trunk until the suspects made their escape. When the victim got out of the trunk, he was in the area of Piedmont Place, near Braddock Road," police said.
The suspects were all described as black males between 18 and 25 years of age. All were wearing hooded jackets. Two had masks on and the third covered his face with a cloth.
