NBA TV host Kristen Ledlow says she was robbed at gunpoint

ATLANTA (AP) " NBA TV personality Kristen Ledlow was robbed at gunpoint at her home, she said.

The host of "NBA Inside Stuff" said on Twitter and Instagram on Sunday that she was held up the day before "by three men who knew who I was, where I lived and were waiting for me when I got home."

She says in addition to stealing her Corvette, purse and phone, the thieves took her "sense of security." She says she'll be taking a break from social media as a result, but she "will not become a slave to fear."

Ledlow told police the group of men got out of a silver sedan and approached her shortly after she pulled into her apartment complex.

One of the men pointed a gun and stole her red 2016 Corvette, Atlanta police spokeswoman Kim Jones told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

Police were called to the area shortly after 3 p.m. Saturday, Jones said.

Using the car's tracking device, police located the Corvette in southwest Atlanta about 25 minutes later, police said. No arrests have been reported.

NBA TV is based in Atlanta.
