PHOENIX (AP) — Phoenix police are trying to sort out how and why a man came to be handcuffed and with a bag over his head in the bed of a stolen pickup truck.

Police say a resident of a mobile home park reported seeing the man in the truck bed late Monday night.

The truck’s driver bolted from the vehicle when police stopped it as it was leaving the mobile home park but he was found later in a nearby shed.

A passenger also was taken into custody as police found several guns in the truck.

Lt. Greg Berghorst says the 39-year-old handcuffed man say he was walking when somebody grabbed him and put him in the truck.

Police didn’t immediately release the names of the two men taken into custody.
