The Calling's Alex Band was kidnapped, robbed, beaten, and dumped after the frontman walked to a convenience store at approximately 4:00 am Sunday morning (August 18), in Lapeer, Michigan.
The group had performed at Lapeer Days Festival Saturday night. Police said that a blue mini-van pulled up alongside Band and two males pulled him into the vehicle. They subsequently beat and robbed him, before dumping him on nearby train tracks.
After his bandmates noticed that he was missing, a search party formed and found him several hours later. He was taken to a local emergency room, treated, and released.
At press time, police had not yet arrested any suspects in the incident
