TALLAHASSEE, Fla. — The Tallahassee Police Department said on Facebook it is investigating an attempted armed robbery and abduction from Tuesday at the Marathon Gas Station at 3626 Mahan Drive.

A white man went up to the victim, asked for directions then pulled a knife on them, according to the department. At knife point, the suspect told the victim to get away from their car, then said "you are coming with me, or I will kill you," the department said.

The suspect drove off in a white Ford F-150.
