Kidnapping in Moreno Valley

On Friday, March 1, 2013, about 7:30 p.m., a female victim was driving her vehicle on Gernert Road, in the unincorporated area of Moreno Valley. The victim stopped her vehicle and an unknown male suspect entered the vehicle. The suspect forced the victim to drive to a remote area near the intersection of Two Trees Road and Galaxy Heights Road, in the unincorporated area of Riverside. Once at their destination, the victim managed to flee and escape.
