    Two other victims were also held at gunpoint and had their hands tied behind their backs, but not abducted.

    "The restraints were so tight it was really hard to get the knife in there and get them loose," Hustin Yingling, a good Samaratin who helped after the attack said. "They were visibly a little shaken up but who wouldn’t be."
