NORTH APOLLO, Pa. (AP) – State police are looking for a couple who kidnapped a 77-year-old Pennsylvania woman who gave them a ride, then held her captive for two days and robbed her of $5,000.
    
WTAE-TV (http://bit.ly/2cFZckr ) says the female suspect asked the victim for a ride Friday night in North Apollo and was joined shortly afterward by the male suspect.
    
Police say the couple put the victim into the car’s trunk at knifepoint then drove around for nearly three hours before letting her out.
    
Police say the trio spent the night in a car before the couple forced the woman to withdraw $5,000 on Saturday. The victim eventually drove away later that day after the couple left the vehicle for some unspecified reason.
    
They had threatened to harm her family if she reported the incident.
