He reportedly saw a dark colored Ford Crown Victoria parks on the shoulder of Naamans Road and Hickman Road flashing its emergency lights, with a woman standing outside the vehicle flagging him down for help.
Authorities say the man stopped to help her, and than when he pulled over, the female walked up to the victim's driver side window and pointed a handgun at his head. She was then reportedly joined by a male suspect with a handgun who forced the victim into the backseat of the Crown Victoria.
According to officials, a third suspect, who was also armed with a handgun, entered the victim's vehicle and drove westbound on Naamans Road. The Crown Victoria, with the female suspect driving and the male suspect in the backseat with the victim, drove southbound on Interstate 495 before stopping in the area of Edgemoor Road in Wilmington and forcing the victim out of the car.
The victim then reportedly ran to a local business where he called the police. Authorities say he was not injured in the incident.
The three suspects are described as one black female and two black males, all between 20 and 30 years of age. No further physical description is currently available.
