A man in his 40s was kidnapped and robbed just outside of Arcadia where he went to conduct a sales transaction he arranged online, authorities said Friday.
Three armed men and their black SUV are being sought for the robbery, which occurred around 9:30 p.m. Thursday in the 9600 block of Naomi Avenue, said Lt. Marsha Williams of the Sheriff’s Temple City Station.
The victim had planned to sell some goods to the suspects and got into their SUV, which is when they took him against his will and drove him a mile out of the area, Williams said.
The suspects, armed with a handgun and a stun gun, took the victim’s goods, backpack, cash, and phone before they put him out of the vehicle, she said. The victim, who walked home and called for help, was not injured, according to Williams.
There was no word from authorities what the victim planned to sell to his attackers.
