Police say pics show minivan used in Durham kidnapping

DURHAM, N.C. (WNCN) - Police have released new photos of the minivan they say was used to kidnap a 26-year-old Durham man last month.

Four men bundled Charleston Prentice Goodman into a Honda Odyssey, police said. The kidnappers struck at about 6:20 p.m. on a Sunday, seizing Goodman only feet away from the apartment he shares with his mother at the South Terrace at Auburn Apartments in Durham, she told CBS North Carolina.

Police believe the minivan was silver and say it might have been a 2005-2008 model. The passenger side sliding door on the van had damage that made it difficult to close, police said.

Four men were involved in the attacks, police said. One had dreadlocks and another was wearing an Adidas striped track suit, they said.

Neighbors said they received an email from the complex's management. It said the victim was not a lease-holder at the complex and that the subjects were known to him.
