Bellevue detectives are seeking witnesses to a kidnapping and assault over the weekend. Shortly after 10 p.m. on Saturday, May 27th, multiple people called 9-11, reporting that a black SUV pulled up in the 10600 block NE 2nd St, and two men got out and fought with another male victim. The two suspects forced the victim into the SUV and sped off.
For the next several hours, officers investigated, interviewing witnesses and searching possible locations where the vehicle was seen. Just after 2 a.m., a convenience store attendant reported a disoriented man who appeared to have been assaulted. Police and fire responded and discovered the man was the victim of the earlier kidnapping. He was transported to the hospital and is in critical condition with life-threatening injuries.
If anyone saw something or knows something about this crime, please call the police non-emergency number (425) 577-5656.
Detectives do not believe there is any ongoing threat to the public.
