Man briefly kidnapped and then robbed in Tenderloin

A 31-year-old man was kidnapped at gunpoint and then robbed inside an apartment before being released early Wednesday morning in the Tenderloin, according to the police.

The victim was approached by a man with a hand gun near Ellis and Jones streets shortly after midnight. One of the two assailants first stuck the gun in the victim’s back and walked the man to a nearby apartment.

Once inside, one of the suspects struck the victim and fled.

No arrest has been made in the case.
