AKRON, Ohio-- A man was held at gunpoint and forced to drive his captors to Mr. Hero on Tuesday.

The 54-year-old victim was withdrawing cash from an ATM near Diagonal Road and South Hawkins Avenue in Akron at about 5 p.m. when two suspects jumped into his truck, police said.

“I was just sitting there waiting and this person hopped in and pointed a gun at me and demanded all my money,” the victim told FOX 8.

The female suspect pulled out a gun and demanded the man drive them to a local Mr. Hero to buy subs. Akron police said the pair then made him go to the area of Courtland and Orlando avenues, where they hit him.

“I had to fight him off because he was going through my pockets and stuff. Then he hit me in the face, and that was it. They took off,” the victim said.

The man and woman got away with the victim's money, wallet, phone and keys.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Akron Police Department.
