MANHATTAN, Kan. (WIBW) Riley County Police say detectives are working to track down the victim of a kidnapping incident at a Manhattan apartment complex.

Their names were not released.

Sgt. Brad Ingalls with the Riley County Police Department's Criminal Intelligence Unit told reporters that the victim left the scene before officers arrived and detectives have not yet had a chance to talk to him about the alleged incident and were working to locate him Friday.

He said police were called to the location after being notified by a "citizen that does not reside" at the apartment.

An arrest has not been made. Officials say the suspect was on scene when police arrived. but the victim had fled. Ingalls could not comment on whether the victim may be injured. The case remains under investigation.
