Wichita police have arrested two people and are looking for a third in the abduction of a man from a house in the 500 block of North Volutsia.

The victim went to the house at about 11 a.m. on Thursday to settle a drug debt, a police report said. After the victim’s hands were tied behind his back, the report said, he was forced into the trunk of a car and driven to northeast Wichita. Police said the man was able to free his hands and escape near at 53rd North and Hillside.

A 40-year-old man and 26-year-old woman were booked on kidnapping and aggravated robbery charges. Police said the third suspect was a man in his 50s.
