According to Atlanta Journal-Constitution's Lauren Foreman, the three robbers got out of a silver sedan shortly after Ledlow's arrival. One of the men approached Ledlow at gun point and forcibly got her out of the car prior to driving away in it.
Police have since recovered the vehicle via tracking device in southwest Atlanta, but no arrest has been made. A police report released on Monday states that Ledlow was in her parking garage when the robbery took place. She was unpacking groceries when the silver sedan pulled up to her.
Surveillance footage from a Chevron gas station on Martin King Luther Jr. Drive is being used by police to aid in identifying the suspects. Ledlow described one suspect as a slim man in his 20s standing 5'8" tall. According to her, the second suspect was taller, and she could not describe the third man.
Investigators have contacted the apartment's management for surveillance footage. No arrest has been made in connection to the incident. Fox Sports 1's Katie Nolan, and Boston Celtics point guard Isaiah Thomas has expressed their support for Ledlow on Twitter. Here is what they wrote in reply to Ledlow's tweet:

Ledlow has said that she will be taking a break from social media after the incident, but will "not become a slave of fear." Ledlow moved to Atlanta in 2013 being a radio host on 92.9/The Game. In 2014, she left for NBA TV and became a co-host on "NBA Inside Stuff" with Grant Hill.
