Two men are in jail, accused of beating and kidnapping another man.

The victim said he was at a house on Azalea when a man he knew as Blacc began questioning him about missing money. Blacc then made a phone call and four men showed up at the home.

The victim told police the men threatened to beat him and shoot him if he didn't give them the money. The victim then ran out of the home towards the Exxon on Bellevue Boulevard. As he ran, the men followed him, pointing a gun at him and yelling, "Shoot him."

Once the victim got to the Exxon station, he stopped. He saw a tan Chevy Suburban pull into the lot with the four men inside. The victim ran into the Exxon for help, but the four men followed him inside and began hitting him and kicking him. The victim then told police he was dragged out of the store and forced into the SUV.

The victim told police the men drove him around for over an hour, then finally dropped him off on South Parkway. He had knots and bruises on his head, scrapes all over his body, and a broken nose.

A few days later, police developed Jammie Baker and Jeffrey Free as suspects in the kidnapping. The two were arrested and charged with aggravated assault and aggravated kidnapping. Free is additionally charged with having a weapon during a felony.

Police are still searching for three other suspects.
