Denison police are investigating a reported kidnapping Tuesday night. A 23-year-old Paris woman said she was transported by force from Denison to Plano and back again before her abductors let her go.

Denison Police Lt. Mike Eppler said the victim reported that she was in Paris when she called some acquaintances to come pick her up. They did so, and drove her to Denison. There were three men and one woman inside a white Chevrolet Impala passenger car.

Eppler said that when they were at the intersection of Randell Lake Road and Juanita Drive in Denison, the driver reportedly stopped the car and the men dragged her from it. Denison Police Officer Travis Mullicanís report said that the men then beat her, bound her with duct tape, and put her inside the trunk. The report said that the victim was able to get free of the duct tape while in the trunk.

She said she then got the trunk open and jumped out and ran. Eppler said, that was at the corner of FM 1417 and U.S. Highway 75 in Sherman, and that the victim recognized the convenience store on one of the corners.

One of the men chased and caught her. This time, Eppler said, they put her into the back seat, covered her with a blanket, and then the car took off again.

The next time she got a look at her surroundings, the victim said, she believed she was somewhere in the Plano area.

Then, just as suddenly, she reported, the car turned around and headed back to Denison. There, she said she asked them to release her and gave them an address of a friend. They took her to that address and let her out. The friend didnít respond to her pounding on the door, so she ran next door to a strangerís house on West Parnell and those residences assisted her. They made the 911 call to Denison police, and that was around midnight.

Eppler said Denison Fire Department EMS took the victim to an emergency room, where she was treated for the minor injuries received.

The victim said there might have been a weapon involved, but neither she nor anybody else was hurt with it. She said she did not know the names of all the people in the vehicle.

Police are following up on information gleaned in the investigation. They are asking that anyone who might have more information call them at 903-465-2422.
