Oklahoma City Police searched Tuesday for a possible kidnapping victim and the possible suspect.

OKCPD responded to a 911 call from a man who claimed he was abducted and stuffed into a trunk.

"The male victim and a female victim were being held against their will," Sgt. Paco Balderrama said. "The male victim was able to escape by again using the emergency latch."

Witness said the man had been beaten up and was handcuffed and the police were soon led to a house where the man said he had been held captive since Monday evening.

After stringing crime tape around the scene at the 1600 block of SE 52, where the alleged abduction took place, the police said they still had very little information but were investigating the incident.

"The house had since been cleared and there's nobody in there," Balderrama said. "We do have one individual who we are detaining."

The surrounding neighbors said they are stunned by the developments, but they're not surprised.

"It's just real shady," Brandon Ferguson said. He noticed a high volume of traffic at the house.

Police said they are still working out the details of this investigation, but they said they believe the suspect was driving a 2006 red Ford Mustang GT with a black racing stripe.
