On the 27th of November 2012 at approximately 0220 hrs, the Woodland Police Department received a call from a Sacramento resident who works in Woodland.  The Sacramento man reported that after leaving work in Woodland at approximatley 0200 hrs, he was driving back to Sacramento on E Main St. Once he reached the intersection of Co Rd 102, two men stopped him in the roadway and forced themselves into his vehicle.  The victim said the two men were both dressed in dark clothing, gloves, and dark ski masks. The victim believed one of the men was armed with an unknown type of gun, although he did not see one.

The suspects ordered the victim to drive into Sacramento and later into West Sacramento, where they ordered the victim to stop. The victim drove away after the suspects got out of the car and walked toward an unknown neighborhood. The victim returned to his home in Sacramento where he called the police. In addition to being taken against his will, the victim reported a small amount of money being taken as well.

The victim could not provide descriptive information about the suspects due to the gloves and masks they wore.

Anybody with information about this incident is encouraged to call the Woodland Police Department at 530-661-7800.  This incident is still being investigated by the police department's investigations division.
