San Jose police are investigating a kidnapping reported at the Target parking lot on Capital Expressway and King Road.

A woman told police she was meeting a Craigslist seller on Monday night to purchase phones at the parking lot when two men pulled out a gun and kidnapped her. The suspects took her to a bank and made the woman withdraw money before dropping her back off at the Target parking lot.

Police are reviewing surveillance footage to see if they captured the alleged crime. The victim, who did not want to be identified, on Wednesday told NBC Bay Area she is still in shock over the incident.

The woman said the suspects took her to a bank to withdraw cash and when she was unable to they brought her back to the Target parking lot.

Police said the woman then reported the suspects ordered her to call someone who could provide money.  A friend of the victim later showed up with thousands of dollars, which was enough to get the robbers to leave, the woman told police.

"I feel still a little nervous," the woman said. "They know my address. They might come back later."
