Leesburg Police Investigating an Abduction and a Robbery
Shortly before 6:00 p.m. on March 14, officers responded to the 1400 block of Campbell Court in reference to a possible abduction. The victim alleges that he was forced into a vehicle but was later able to jump out of the moving vehicle and call for help. The investigation resulted in the identification of two suspects along with the vehicle used in the abduction. The suspect vehicle was later located and one suspect was taken into custody along with a female companion. The second suspect was able to avoid apprehension.
