SIOUX FALLS -- A person suffered minor injuries after being kidnapped and robbed at gunpoint at the Sioux Falls Inn and then dropped off across the Iowa border in Lyon County over the weekend.

At  12:11 a.m. Saturday officers of the Sioux Falls Police Department were contacted by deputies from the Lyon County Sheriff’s Department who said they had a person with them who had been kidnapped and robbed at the motel at 1300 W. Russell St. and then driven out of town and pushed out of a vehicle there.

The deputies  brought the victim back to Sioux Falls where he told investigators he was smoking a cigarette in the parking lot when a vehicle approached him and forced him inside at gunpoint.  They then took an undisclosed amount of money from him and took him out of town.
