    An investigation is underway after a woman was kidnapped by a fake cop in Cleveland early Monday morning.

    "I just wish nobody ever had to go through what I went through," said the victim.

CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) -

Cleveland police have two men in custody for questioning in a fake cop kidnapping on the city's east side.

19 Action News has learned police are still searching for a third suspect.

The female victim told police that she was driving in the area of East 123rd Street and Chesterfield between 4 a.m. and 5 a.m. on Monday when she noticed a vehicle behind her blinking its lights.

"And he rolled up on me like if he was going to hit me so I pulled over and stopped he was that close to me," the victim said.

Believing this was a police vehicle, she pulled over and a man wearing plain clothes (not a uniform) approached her vehicle.

The victim said the man was wearing a gold detective type badge. He ordered her out of the vehicle and then handcuffed her and put her in the back seat of her own vehicle. He then drove the victim's vehicle with victim in the back followed by a second suspect driving suspect vehicle. The second suspect eventually stopped his car and got into the back seat with the victim.

The victim reports that the two men drove her around for some time asking her questions about a man named "Twins" whom she didn't know. Then she said things got scary.

"The guy pulled out a gun and said I'll blow your f-ing head off, do you see this? And that's when I knew I was in trouble," the victim said.

After removing the handcuffs they finally stopped at a Sunoco gas station in the area of East 109th Street. The suspects let her out and drove away with her vehicle and property, including her cell phone and keys.

If you have any information, call the Crime Stoppers. Fifth District Detectives are investigating.
