A 20-year-old man was found guilty Wednesday morning on charges of armed robbery and kidnapping with a firearm, state attorneys said.

Bernard White, Jr. faces life in prison as a prison release re-offender.

In January 2013, White approached a male victim who was sitting in his vehicle listening to music. Authorities said White pointed a gun at the victim and forced him out of the car.

White then demanded money from the victim, who explained he only had an ATM card. The victim was forced back into his vehicle and driven to an ATM to withdraw money, attorneys said.

The victim was eventually taken to a nearby park and White fled the area, authorities said.

White is expected to be sentenced the week of June 2.
