Southington man tells Warren police he was abducted, beaten and tortured

Posted: Updated:
WARREN, Ohio -

Warren Police detectives are investigating a report from a Southington man who says he was abducted from a city street, blindfolded, tied up, beaten and tortured for several days.

The officer who interviewed the 29-year-old man at Trumbull Memorial Hospital on Wednesday says he had clearly been beaten.

The victim's entire face was purple, his nose was broken and his eyes were bloodshot. In addition, he had second and third degree burns on his chest and back.

According to the report, the man told police that a car stopped behind him as he was walking in the area of Hamilton and Delaware SW late Sunday morning.

He says someone pulled a dark colored cover over his head, placed a gun at his back and told him to get into a car.

Within five minutes, the man says his captor led him out of the car and to a chair, where he was bound with a belt.

Since he still had the cover over his head, he couldn't tell police who took his cell phone and the $150 dollars he was carrying.

He says beatings then began, claiming someone hit him in the head for an off and on period of time lasting two or three hours.

The victim tells investigators that his torturers took some type of item that had been heated and burned the skin on his chest and back.

The man says that after a day or two on the stool, he managed to untie himself and remove the cover from his head

Seeing no one around, he says he left the garage and ran into the woods until he was near a dump on Martin Luther King Blvd.

He walked to the home of his girlfriend, who drove him to the hospital.

The police report notes that the victim admitted having a drug problem and owed a drug dealer $70 from the past.

Warren police and other jurisdictions also have warrant's for his arrest on felony charges including burglary and drug possession.
