RALEIGH, N.C. (WNCN) — Raleigh Police say a woman told police she was held hostage and assaulted earlier Monday, but a man who was reportedly held hostage actually was not.

The case began just  after 9:30 a.m. Monday when Raleigh Polices responded to a call that involved a kidnapping and a related hostage situation.

The initial response focused on a hotel in the 3900 block of South Wilmington Street, where a woman reported she had been held against her will and assaulted before managing to break free and contact police, Raleigh Police said.

The female also told police that she thought a man she knew was being held hostage at in a home along Schenley Drive, police said.

More police responded to that location.

However, around noon, the man  who was possibly being held hostage at the Schenley Drive address was found elsewhere and was, in fact, not being held at that point, police say.

No other victims are known to exist.   Detectives are continuing the follow-up investigation of the case.

Additional information will be available as the follow up progresses.
