OFFICIAL PRESS RELEASE FROM THE PEND OREILLE SHEIFF'S OFFICE: On Sunday, May 27, 2012 at approx. 7:10am a motorist reported that while driving on State Route 2 near Pend Oreille Park he observed a man escape from the trunk of a vehicle. He stated that he watched as the trunk of the vehicle traveling in front of him popped open and a man started waving his arms and yelling for help. 

The car quickly came to a stop and the man jumped out of the trunk and ran towards the witness's vehicle. The witness said the victim told him he had been beaten, bound and forced into the trunk of the suspects' car while in Montana.

The victim refused medical attention while on scene, but was later taken to Crime Victim Services for assistance.

A short time later, deputies observed the suspect vehicle traveling toward Newport, Washington. When briefly failing to stop, the suspects threw a firearm from the vehicle, which was later recovered. 

Arrested on scene: Kenny J. Morrison age 29 of Columbia Falls, Montana and John M. Davis age 39 also of Columbia Falls, Montana.  Both were booked on charges of Kidnapping, Unlawful Imprisonment, Assault 4th, Possession of Methadone without a prescription and Unlawful Possession of a Firearm.
