VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. (WAVY) — Virginia Beach Police say they have arrested two suspects from a Dec. 22 robbery and abduction case due to information received following a 10 On Your Side report.

Detectives arrested Mark John Albrecht II, 36, and Jorge Andres Zambrana, 49, of Virginia Beach.

According to Police Spokeswoman Tonya Pierce, the arrests were made after police received several Crime Solvers tips with possible ID’s of the suspects following the victim’s interview with WAVY’s Deanna LeBlanc.

The victim told 10 On Your Side that the two men approached her on Dec. 22 in a busy parking lot off Virginia Beach Boulevard and forced her into the backseat of her own car.

She said they told her that they did not want her car, wallet or phone — just her cash. She also told 10 On Your Side they drove her around to several area ATMs in an attempt to get her to withdraw cash.

She said the two dropped her off near the Sam’s Club on Virginia Beach Boulevard after the ordeal, which lasted between one and two hours.

Albrecht and Zambrana have both been charged with robbery, carjacking, abduction and conspiracy.

They are currently being held at Virginia Beach Correctional Center without bond.
