Orange County deputies find kidnapping victim tied up and left along roadway

The Orange County Sheriff's Office is investigating a kidnapping.

A spokesperson for the Sheriff's Office said that around 4:30 a.m. Monday a dispatcher received a 9-1-1 call from a motorist in the 7100 block of Bessie Heights Road in Orangefield. The caller said that a woman was near the edge of the roadway and appeared to have been assaulted. The caller also said that it appeared the female's hands and feet were tied together with rope.

Once on scene, deputies found a woman with her hands tied behind her back. Her feet were tied together, her mouth was duct taped, and she was blind folded.

The victim was conscious and alert with only minor abrasion type injuries.

The victim told Deputies that on Sunday evening, the previous day, she had gone along with several friends to a house in the Orangefield area where there were several people she did not know. A disagreement started between her and several of the people there. They tied her up and placed duct tape over her mouth. After a while, they placed her in a vehicle blind folded and drove her to Bessie Heights Road where they left her on the side of the roadway.

The investigation into the kidnapping is ongoing and the suspects are still being identified.

The spokesperson said although the incident appears bizarre, investigators believe that this is an isolated case among those who were at the house where this incident occurred.
