Another abduction reported by gunmen seeking to get someone to tap an ATM. This note is going around to UAMS employees today from Chancellor Dodd Wilson:

I wanted to let you know of a situation that occurred this morning involving one of our employees who works at the Westmark Building on Markham Street across from the main campus.
 
The employee was abducted at gunpoint from the parking lot when she arrived at work at 5:30 a.m., and was taken to two ATM machines where she withdrew money. She was returned unharmed to the Westmark Building.
 
We are thankful that she was returned safely. UAMS police have stepped up patrols of campus parking areas and are looking at other ways to increase safety.
 
We ask all employees and students to be aware of their surroundings and to call UAMS police at 686-7777 if they see any suspicious activity. You may also call 911. Also, please remember that if you are on campus after dark or feel for any reason that you would like an escort to your car, the UAMS police are happy to assist you. If you arrive for work early and the building in which you work is locked and you don't have a key, please call UAMS police to unlock the door for you so you can go inside rather than waiting on the parking lot.
 
We want UAMS to be a safe environment and for everyone to feel secure. Our employees and students are very important to us.
