Wichita police arrest 2 for reported kidnapping incident

By George Lawson. CREATED Dec 27, 2013

Wichita police have a man and woman in custody and they're looking for a third person in connection with a reported kidnapping incident on Thursday.

Police captain Troy Livingston said a 34-year-old man went to a home around 11 a.m. to resolve a dispute, and then someone pulled a gun on the man and told him to take off his clothes. The man was then tied up and forced into the trunk of a car.   While the car was moving, the man freed himself and got the trunk lid open, and he jumped out and flagged down a motorist for help.

Livingston said officers later arrested a 40-year-old man and a 26-year-old woman, and they were also looking for a man in his 50's.   The victim was not seriously hurt.

There's no word on what the dispute was about, but according to a written police report, it involved a drug debt.
