The victim and some friends were in the Hillcroft area in southwest Houston when the victim was reportedly tossed into a green sedan by three kidnappers. The friends pursued the car, and around the Pierce Elevated area the victim reportedly jumped out of the kidnappers' vehicle. He is apparently unhurt.

Police were able to catch up to the suspects as they came to a stop at an intersection of I-45 North and Main. Three suspects were taken into custody in this suspected kidnapping.

Investigators say they're trying to piece together exactly what happened. It's possible there are some immigration issues involved as well. Officers are waiting for officials with Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) to arrive on the scene.
