Five young people have allegedly abducted a male victim from a Missouri gas station, but police don’t know the identities of those involved, so they’re reaching out to the public for help with the investigation.
“At this time, the victim and suspects are still being sought,” the St. Louis Metropolitan Police Department wrote. “Anyone with information is urged to call CrimeStoppers at 866-371-TIPS (8477).”
Officials describe this as first-degree robbery and first-degree kidnapping. Cops said the incident happened at 8:22 p.m. Friday at the Phillips 66 gas station at 3237 South Grand Boulevard.
Police allege surveillance footage showed a white Kia Optima and a blue Chevrolet sedan pulling into the service station. Those vehicles blocked the victim while he was at the pump, officials said.
“Suspects #1 and #2 approached the victim’s Chevy Bolt with guns pointed at the victim,” police said. “The victim was apparently ordered out of his vehicle, searched and then Suspect #3 appeared to remove the victim’s jacket. The victim was then placed in the passenger seat of his own vehicle. Suspects #1 and #2 got into the victim’s vehicle and fled the scene with the victim in the vehicle. The victim’s vehicle was followed by the Kia Optima and blue Chevrolet sedan driven by suspects #4 and #5.”
Police told Law&Crime the guns were firearms.
Officers describe the victim as unknown, black, male, in his late teens to early 20s. He was wearing a black jacket, black pants and blue surgical gloves. The five suspects are also teenagers.
- Suspect 1: Black and male, age 16 to 20 years old. He was wearing a red hoodie and black pants
