LOS ANGELES (AP) – Authorities are searching for two gunmen who allegedly kidnapped a young woman and strapped a device to her stomach before robbing a Bank of America in East Los Angeles.

Los Angeles County sheriff‘s Sgt. Michael Duran says the robbery occurred shortly after 8:30 a.m. Wednesday. Duran says the victim told investigators she was kidnapped in nearby Huntington Park and taken to the bank wearing a device placed on her stomach.

The bank was robbed and authorities are looking for two men with ski masks and handguns who fled in a two-door car, possibly a Kia.

It’s not known what the woman’s condition is. A sheriff’s bomb squad is working around a small object in the street outside the bank.
