Man Waiting for Rideshare Abducted After Getting into Wrong Car

A man who was using a ride-sharing app to get home was abducted when a car matching his ride pulled up instead of the car he requested on Saturday.

The man realized he had climbed into a car that he did not request when he saw three other men in the car. As the car drove out of the parking lot on Dranesville Road around 2 a.m., one of the men hit the victim several times and stole his phone, wallet, and passport.

The victim was then pushed out of the car in a cul-de-sac. His injuries were not life-threatening and the investigation is ongoing.
