On Tuesday, September 27th, Deputies found a man in a field near Firehouse Pizza, and he told them a terrifying story. He said that he and another man were kidnapped and taken to a home on Ainsley Avenue in Wheelersburg.
The victims were restrained with zip ties while several people beat them with fists and weapons. He also tipped them off about the location of a second victim.
An ambulance transported the first victim to the hospital while deputies headed to the location of the second victim. That man confirmed that he had also been kidnapped and assaulted. He initially refused medical treatment but decided he wanted an ambulance after experiencing pain in his ribs.
Scioto County Sheriff David Throroughman said detectives obtained a search warrant for the Ainsley Avenue residence and began to process the crime scene. While they were there, two suspects showed up at the home, and a third was spotted driving down the street. Officers took all three into custody without incident.
Both victims were initially treated at SOMC. One was transferred to a Columbus trauma center, and the other required a transfer to a higher-level facility.
