The victim was removing items from the car, described as a red, 2022 Acura ILX sedan, when an armed man pushed them into the passenger seat of the car while a woman got in the back seat and restrained them from behind, the sheriff’s office said in a Facebook post.

The subjects drove for about a mile before pulling over and forcing the victim to leave the car, deputies said.
