At 11:24 p.m. police responded to the 600 block of S. Hancock Avenue, which is where the victim said the kidnapping had taken place, according to the police report.

The victim, an adult male, called CSPD from his cell phone and said that he had been assaulted by multiple suspects before being thrown into the trunk of a car.

The car was in motion while the victim was on the phone, according to police. The victim stayed on the phone with police and gave them updates to his locations.
