Kristen Ledlow, the host of “NBA Inside Stuff” and a reporter for NBA TV, was robbed at gunpoint and carjacked Saturday afternoon in Midtown, Atlanta police said.
Officers were dispatched to the 1900 block of Monroe Drive just before 3:20 p.m., Atlanta police Officer Kim Jones said Monday.
Ledlow told police a group of men got out of a silver sedan and approached her shortly after she pulled into her apartment complex.
“One of the male suspects pointed a gun at the victim and took her vehicle,” a red 2016 Corvette, Jones said. Using the car’s tracking device, police located the Corvette in southwest Atlanta about 25 minutes later, police said.
The police report, released Monday afternoon, said Ledlow was in her apartment's parking garage when the incident occurred. The car pulled up to her as she was unloading groceries.
Police are using surveillance video from a Chevron gas station on Martin Luther King Jr. Drive to help identify the suspects.
One of the alleged gunmen is described as 5-foot-8 with a slim build and possibly in his 20s. Ledlow told told police a second man was taller than the second man. She was unable to describe the third man.
Ledlow wrote about the experience on social media.
“Yesterday, I was robbed at gunpoint by three men who knew who I was, where I lived, and were waiting for me when I got home,” Ledlow said Sunday in an Instagram post. “They stole my car, my purse, my wallet, my phone and worst of all, my sense of security.”
Ledlow came to Atlanta in 2013 as a radio host on 92.9/The Game. She left for NBA TV in 2014 and co-hosts “NBA Inside Stuff” with Grant Hill.
No one has been arrested in connection with the armed robbery and carjacking. Investigators have contacted the apartment’s management office for video footage.
“While I will be taking a social media hiatus,” Ledlow said in the Instagram post, “I will not become a slave to fear.”
