OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) - Oakland police say they have arrested two suspects in connection with a kidnapping for ransom after a man was found bound in the trunk of the suspects' car.

KGO-TV reports the kidnapping victim suffered minor injuries and was taken to the hospital for treatment Friday.

Oakland police say they were alerted to the kidnapping by family members around midnight on Friday. Police say the kidnapping appeared to be targeted, but they were not clear on the relationship between the kidnappers and the victim.

Police say the suspect's car aroused their suspicion early Friday morning and then a chase ensued and ended in a crash in Hayward.

Police then discovered the victim inside the trunk of the car.
