LAPEER, Mich. — The lead singer of rock group The Calling was abducted, beaten and robbed after performing at a Michigan festival, the band said Monday.
Alex Band was attacked outside a store in Lapeer early Sunday, the group told The Associated Press. The Calling had performed Saturday night at a festival in the city of 8,800, about 45 miles north of Detroit.
Band had a spinal fracture, three broken teeth and needed 15 stiches in his chin, The Calling said in a statement.
Police asked the public for help in investigating.
Detective Sgt. Craig Gormley said in a statement — that doesn't name Band by name— that the victim reported two males forced him into a minivan, then assaulted and robbed him before dropping him off at a railroad crossing.
