A 56-year-old Woodbridge woman was abducted in a Fairfax County shopping center parking lot, police said.

Friday afternoon, the woman was standing next to her car in the 7200 block of Arlington Boulevard when two men approached her. One of the men displayed a handgun and ordered her into her vehicle, according to Fairfax County police.

The woman drove the abductors to her home in the 4200 block of Gibson Court in Woodbridge. She and one of the men entered her home, where the man took money, Prince William County police said.

The woman was then forced back into her vehicle and driven to Cheshire Station Plaza. Once there, the men told her to exit the vehicle and to walk towards one of the businesses. When the woman went back to her car a short time later, the men were gone.

The woman was not injured.

One of the men was described as a light skinned Hispanic, 50 to 55 years old, and 5 feet 7 inches tall, with a thin build, a clean shaven face and some gray hair. He was last seen wearing a brown leather jacket, hat, brown pants and brown dress shoes.

The other man was described as a light skinned Hispanic, 40-to-45 years old, and 5'5", with a heavy build, a clean shaven face and a broad nose. He was last seen wearing a black baseball hat and khaki pants.

Anyone with information in the case can call 866-411-TIPS (8477).
