ST. CLOUD, Minn. (KNSI) - A man says he was kidnapped and sexually assaulted while walking along a road just south of Rice.

Police made contact with the 18-year-old at around 10:30 Monday night on NE River Road near 119th Street NW.

The man told police he was walking along the road when he accepted a ride from a man driving a dark blue or purple van.

He says he was rendered unconscious soon after getting in the van, and woke up later along the side of the road.

The victim was taken to St. Cloud Hospital to be checked out.

He described the man who picked him up as white, about 50-years-old with a gray mustache.

The suspect was wearing a baseball cap, jean jacket and blue jeans.

The victim says the suspect may have a Southern accent.

Anyone with information on the incident should contact the Benton County Sheriff's Office at 320-968-7201 or Tri-County Crimestoppers at 800-255-1301.
