HOOKSETT, N.H. (CBS) — A male teenager was kidnapped at the Mall of New Hampshire in Manchester on Saturday, taken to woods in Hooksett, and beaten before his captors allowed him run for safety, the police said.

At 1:23 p.m., Hooksett Police officers responded to a report the teen coming out of the woods naked saying he had been mugged. When the officers arrived, it was determined that the teen had been forced into a car at the mall by two adult men, the Hooksett Police reported in a prepared statement.

The suspects, Don Little, 29, of Rochester, and Michael Renfrew, 24, Raymond, allegedly drove the teen to Morning Side Drive in Hooksett. The teen was allegedly threatened with a gun, though no gun was shown, and forced to walk into the woods about a mile. Then the teen was ordered to take his clothes off and was beaten before being told to run or be shot, the police said.

Neighborhood residents found the teen emerging from the woods and called the police. The teen gave officers a description of the suspects and the car they drove.

While police were investigating at Morning Side Drive, the suspects drove back to the area, where they were stopped and arrested.
