NBA TV host robbed at gunpoint in Midtown

Sports reporter robbed at gunpoint

ATLANTA - NBA TV host Kristen Ledlow was ambushed and robbed at gunpoint at her Midtown home Saturday.

Ledlow posted a note to social media Sunday night, saying,"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. They stole my car, my purse, my wallet, my phone- and worst of all, my sense of security."

Atlanta Police confirmed to 11Alive News they were called to the apartment complex at 3:18 Saturday afternoon. Although Ledlow's post mentions three men, the initial report from APD lists two. "She was approached by two black males who exited from a silver newer model sedan," according to an Atlanta spokesperson.

One of the male suspects pointed a gun at her and stole her 2016 red Corvette. Police found the car 25 minutes later.

Atlanta Police are working with the management company of the apartment complex to obtain video footage.

Ledlow said she'd be taking a break from social media, but said she would "not be a slave to fear."
