Lt. Paral with GBPD said three calls took place Friday at 11:38 a.m., 2:09 p.m. and 3:08 p.m.
The caller demanded money saying they had the person’s “daughter”.
The victims said one of the callers sounded like a person with a Hispanic accent, another thought one of the callers sounded African-American. The third victim said they were unsure.
