Do you hear what I hear?

A possible kidnapping victim contacted police. The 34-year-old man said he finished his job working at the stadium for an Atlanta Falcons game, and he went to cash his paycheck. He said around 2 a.m., three men jumped him, threw him into a truck and beat him until he was unconscious. He said when he woke up, he was lying under a bunch of sheetrock and trash in an abandoned apartment on Ashby Street. He said the men took his money ($50 cash and a money order for $160) and his backpack -- but they didn't take his wallet. Also, the man said he'd been drinking, and after he woke up, he tried to drink a beer but couldn't, so he threw away the beer in a field. Then, he took a bus home to his apartment on Thomasville Boulevard. The man complained of injuries to his head, shoulder and legs. Medics examined him -- they said his wounds appeared old and already healing. Police spoke with the man's girlfriend. She said this type of thing always seems to happen to her boyfriend on his payday.
