Both men are being held in the Virginia Beach Correctional Center without bond.

Zambrana’s trial will be on June 2.

The incident happened on Tuesday, December 22, 2015 at around 1:45 p.m.

The woman was loading up her car after shopping at the location at 3345 Virginia Beach Boulevard.

She told police she was trying to get into the car when a man asked her for directions to Holland Road.

She started to tell him where to go and another suspect came up, took out a knife and told her to get into the car.

They drove her to several ATMs to get money.

After a few hours, they took her to the back of HH Gregg, which is across the street from the Sam’s Club.

Police say they believe the suspects were looking for victims in the Sam’s Club and Pier One/HH Gregg parking lots before they robbed the woman.
