A man was carjacked at gunpoint, abducted and robbed during a three-hour ordeal last month in Montgomery County, police say.
A man was headed home from work and driving in the 3800 block of Grand Pre Road in Aspen Hill at about 4:15 a.m. Sept. 27 when he saw a car speed up behind him, police said. When he waved the driver past, the car blocked him in. That's when things got ugly.

"Three male suspects got out of the vehicle. Two of them pointed a handgun at the victim and forced him out of his vehicle and pushed him into the rear passenger seat," said Sgt. Sunyoung Kim.
The gunmen took the man’s wallet, iPhone, credit cards and cash. At a bank in Aspen Hill, one of the suspects used the victim’s debit card to make a withdrawal from the ATM while the victim was still in the car.
They eventually set the man free at the intersection of New Hampshire Avenue and Cape May Road in Colesville. They told him to go away, not look back and not call the police. He walked about five miles to get home.
