A 34-year-old man was kidnapped by a group of people, at least one of them armed, in the Bronx Tuesday, authorities say.
Witnesses told police the group of men forced Russell Lowe into a 2014 black Toyota Sienna with New York license plates on Wilkinson Avenue in Pelham Bay shortly after 2 p.m. and drove south on Westchester Avenue.
The men who took him are believed to be in their 20s or 30s.
Police say Lowe has been abducted in the past, but he was let go. Investigators are looking into whether the kidnapping may be drug- or gambling-related.
Lowe, who lives in the Bronx, is about 5 feet 9 inches tall and 170 pounds with black hair and brown eyes. Anyone who has seen him is asked to call police.
