Orlando, Fla. -The Orange County Sheriff's Office is investigating a kidnapping Monday morning.

The incident was reported near Boggy Creek Road and Tradeport Drive.



Investigators tell WESH 2 News that the victim is a man who said he was kidnapped from the Florida Mall around 9:30 p.m. Sunday by three gunmen.



The men took the victim to a house near New Hope Road and Boggy Creek Road for several hours.



"The suspects are believed to have battered the victim and demanded he take them to a nearby ATM to withdraw money," said Jeff Williamson, Sheriff's Office spokesman.



Eventually the men dropped the victim off at the 7-Eleven on Boggy Creek Road.



Deputies said the victim suffered minor injuries.



Williamson said the victim knew at least one of the attackers and that the kidnapping was not a random act.
