PHOENIX (CBS5) -
Phoenix police were looking for a motive after finding a man in the bed of a stolen pickup truck handcuffed and with a bag over his head Monday night.
A resident of a mobile home park near 25th Street and Greenway Parkway called police to report seeing the handcuffed man in the truck, Phoenix police Lt. Greg Berghorst said.
Police encountered the truck as it was starting to leave the trailer park about 10:30 p.m., Berghorst said.
The driver immediately bailed from the truck and ran into the trailer park while a 29-year-old passenger was immediately captured, Berghorst said.
In the bed of the truck lay the 39-year-old handcuffed man with a bag over his head. Officers found two rifles and two shotguns inside the truck, which had been reported stolen on Sunday, Berghorst said.
The 20-year-old driver was found in a shed a few streets down nearly two hours later and surrendered without resisting to the Phoenix police special tactics team.
Berghorst said the victim spoke only Spanish, but told police through an interpreter that he was walking near Cave Creek and Bell roads when someone came up from behind, grabbed him, placed the bag over his head and threw him into the bed of the truck.
Berghorst said the man believed he had been driven around a couple hours before stopping at the trailer park. He told police he didn't know the suspects, Berghorst said.
"There are just a lot of unanswered questions," Berghorst said.
The driver could face possible kidnapping charges, while charges are pending for the passenger, Berghorst said.
