    Dallas police say two people have been arrested in Oklahoma in connection with a kidnapping and robbery at an ATM in Dallas.

    Investigators said the individuals, whose names have not been released, are the two people seen in surveillance pictures from the Bank of America on Cedar Springs Road.

    Four people abducted a 43-year-man at gunpoint on Sept. 3 and forced him to withdraw money from several ATMs around Dallas and Irving.

    The two other people involved in the robbery are still on the loose.

    Dallas police are investigating an ATM robbery at a Chase bank. Police are trying to determine if the robbery is related to the abduction of a man from an ATM at a different bank earlier this month. Two people have been arrested in that case.

    Police are trying to determine if the group was involved in another ATM robbery Tuesday night at the Chase bank in the 12000 block of Coit Road. In that incident, a robber stuck a gun in the face of a 26-year-old Dallas man who was using the drive-through ATM at about 10:30 p.m.

    The victim, who asked not to be identified in fear for his life, said he thought for a moment that he would die. The victim said the robber cocked the gun to make sure he knew he was serious when he hesitated ever so slightly at entering his PIN.

    The victim described the robber as calm and relaxed, as if he'd robbed others before.

    The man took the victim's wallet, cellphone, jewelry and car keys. The victim said the robber fled toward a gas station next door a getaway car was waiting for him.

    Dallas police said they need to interview the victim and review surveillance tape before determining if the incident is connected to any other ATM robberies.
