Baltimore County police were investigating a kidnapping in Reisterstown late Wednesday night after tracking a suspect down Interstate-795 and locating the victim in his truck.

Just after 9:30 p.m., police received a report of a kidnapping near the intersection of Reisterstown Road and Franklin Avenue, said Cpl. Cathy Batton, a police spokeswoman.

When police responded, they were advised by a man at the scene that one of his acquaintances had kidnapped one of his male relatives and was demanding money, Batton said. The ages of those involved were not immediately known, Batton said.

Police subsequently located the suspect's vehicle on I-795 headed toward Carroll County and pulled the vehicle over, Batton said.

The victim was located unharmed inside the vehicle, she said.

Detectives were still investigating the incident late Wednesday.

No further information was immediately available.
