An Ohio bank manager was held hostage along with his family and forced to withdraw more than $100,000 from the financial institution where he worked, police said.

In a 911 call obtained by ABC News, the Ontario, Ohio, bank manager said that when he got home Thursday night, a young man was there with a gun that the caller described as a .380.

"Someone just robbed me. He was supposed to tie me up but he didn't. I fought him. ... It was some kid," the bank manager says to the dispatcher. "He didn't tell me his name."

The Richland County Sheriff's Office confirmed to ABC News today that the manager's wife and children had been taken hostage at 2 p.m. Thursday at their home. When the bank manager, returned home at 9 p.m., he was taken hostage as well.

In the 911 call, the bank manager said that he did not recognize the young man and that he stayed with them overnight.

"The kid apologized the entire time. He said it wasn't his idea," the bank manager said.

"He said the guy would kill him and come back and get my family," the victim said to the 911 dispatcher. "That's why I want someone here right away."

The bank manager said on the emergency call that 5 a.m. today, he was sent to the bank alone, where he withdrew between $100,000 and $200,000, and then returned. He said his family was released after he handed over the money.

"Someone rolled by and picked him up," the bank manager said on the call, adding that he could not see the car's driver. "I got my kids back. ... I need someone here quickly."

The Richland County Sheriff's Office told ABC News that the FBI was also involved in the investigation. In a report, authorities said they were looking for a white male age 19-25 and a tan Ford Taurus.
