On December 19th, at approximately 3:00 pm, officers from the Arcata Police Department responded to the report of a vehicle collision at Days Inn Motel, 4701 Valley West Blvd, according to an APD release.

Upon the officers arrival, they discovered a black Toyota
Tacoma truck had slammed into the rear of a parked Chevy Tahoe.
The driver of the Toyota advised officers that he was the victim of a
robbery and kidnapping.

roomThe victim had been staying at the motel with a female acquaintance for the past couple of days.  A few minutes prior to the collision, the female accompanied by two men who were unknown to the victim, barged into the motel room brandishing knives.

The trio demanded the victim take them to his storage unit where they believed he had money.  The victim and the female got into his Toyota truck where the female demanded he drive to the storage unit.  The two male accomplices were to follow them in another
vehicle.

Upon leaving the parking lot of the motel, the victim rapidly accelerated the Toyota truck and purposely collided with the parked Tahoe in the hopes the collision would foil the robbery and bring the police. 

Immediately after the collision the two male accomplices fled on foot.  The victim struggled with the female until she was able to break free and run to her vehicle which was still in the parking lot. The female then fled the scene in her vehicle.
