Oklahoma City police are investigating after a man was kidnapped Friday afternoon.

Police say the victim's car broke down Friday, then a group of men picked him up and held him against his will overnight. On Saturday morning, the victim told the men he had money in the bank.

According to police, the men took the victim at gunpoint to the Tinker Federal Credit Union on N.E. 23rd Street.

Police say that's where an off duty officer happened to be working security, and the victim was able to tell the officer what was going on. The suspects were arrested, according to police.

Police have not released any names.

After this story aired Saturday, two viewers contacted News 9 saying they believe the victim may be a relative who went missing Wednesday night. 

The Seminole Police Department is currently working the case for the missing man, but there has been no official word on whether the two cases are related.
