Man kidnapped in SoMa, robbed at gunpoint

On Dec. 26 a 25-year-old man was kidnapped and then robbed at gunpoint, says SFPD.

The victim received a scam phone call, asking him to meet the suspect at Mission and Sixth streets. Upon arriving around 1:00 a.m., the victim was taken inside a vehicle by two men. An object, described by police as possibly being a handgun, was placed against the victim’s body while he was being driven around.

The suspects eventually took the victim’s belongings, and dropped him off around 2:00 a.m. on Cesar Chavez Street, before fleeing the scene.
