A woman was kidnapped on Tuesday afternoon and forced to drive to several banks around San Francisco and withdraw money before being released unharmed, police said.

The kidnapping occurred around 1 p.m. Tuesday in the 1500 block of Sloat Boulevard.

The 60-year-old victim was in a parking lot when she was approached by two other women who claimed they had a gun, according to police.

The suspects ordered the woman to drive with them to several banks, where they had her withdraw cash and give it to them, police said.

The suspects, described as two women between 55 and 65 years old, then ordered her to drive to Stonestown Galleria Mall, where they got out of the car and fled. They had not been found as of this morning.

Anyone with information about the case is encouraged to call the Police Department's anonymous tip line at (415) 575-4444 or send a tip by text message to TIP411.
