Man kidnapped in San Jose, robbed of wallet, driven to San Francisco

This was a long way to go to rob someone of their wallet.

A 24-year-old man was abducted Wednesday night by three other men near his home in San Jose and driven to San Francisco where he managed to escape, police said.

Some time between the hours of 10 p.m. Wednesday and 6 a.m. Thursday, the victim was kidnapped and driven in a black minivan to the Bayview where he was somehow able to elude his captors, police said. During the ordeal, the victim’s wallet was stolen.

The victim sustained a contusion to his head, police said, and was treated at a hospital.

Little description of the suspects was available.
