LPD investigates cross-county kidnapping

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - Police investigate a reported kidnapping out of central Lubbock. The victim says he was assaulted and then came to more than 70-miles north of the city.

The 39-year-old victim told police he was working on his vehicle here in the 6500 Block of Avenue U on Saturday morning when two suspects assaulted him, and then he and his vehicle ended up in Swisher County.  "Victim was taken to a Tulia hospital, later was transported I believe by ambulance to University Medical Center, and the vehicle was also brought back to Lubbock and then we were notified of the situation," Lubbock Police Captain Greg Stevens said. 

The victim told police he came-to, near Tulia, which is about 75-miles north of Lubbock. He says he flagged down a passer-by who alerted local authorities. The victim says the suspects also robbed him.

Authorities tell us he had visible wounds that did not appear life threatening. Police say this is an ongoing investigation that's just now getting underway, but investigators tell us they do not believe the victim knew the suspects. "We don't have any indication, right now, that it was from a previous association, but we certainly aren't ruling that out," Stevens said. 

Authorities tell us if they identify the suspects, they could be charged with a range of charges or combination of charges, including aggravated assault, kidnapping and robbery; but authorities say they only have a vague description of the two suspects. That is a black male and a black female. So, if you know anything that could help investigators solve this crime, call Crime Line at (806) 741-1000.

    Senate Republicans are now considering two versions of similar legislation, one that would repeal and replace, and another that would simply repeal "Obamacare" with a two-year delay for implementation to give the Senate more time to agree on a replacement.
