Boys escape kidnapping from McDonald’s in western Bayview

Two 14-year-old boys were kidnapped at gunpoint from a McDonald’s in the Bayview early Wednesday, but escaped from the armed man while he wasn’t looking, police said.

The kidnapper walked into the fast-food restaurant on Bayshore Boulevard and Flower Street, pointed a handgun at the boys and forced them to leave with him around 9 a.m., police said.

He then made the boys carry his baggage across the street to a Shell gas station, where he turned to speak with a female. That’s when the boys fled from him.

No detailed description of the suspect was released by police.
