3 arrested after Philadelphia teen is kidnapped, beaten

The 17-year-old was rescued after police and a SWAT team surrounded a northeast Philadelphia home, NBC Philadelphia reported.

A 17-year-old boy was kidnapped and injured before being rescued in an operation involving a SWAT team, police in Philadelphia said.

The teen's parents contacted Philadelphia police after their son went missing from their home in the Lawndale neighborhood on Sunday night, NBC Philadelphia reported.

Police Chief Inspector Scott Small told NBC Philadelphia that family members "said they heard a loud noise coming from the basement and went downstairs to find the 17-year-old wasn't there." Bullet holes were found after officers arrived.

The missing teen's cellphone was used to track him to a home in Oxford Circle, a neighborhood in northeast Philadelphia, Small told NBC Philadelphia.

Two women and a man emerged from the home early Monday, followed by the 17-year-old, who had suffered head injuries. The boy said he had been "tortured," according to NBC Philadelphia, and was listed as stable in a hospital.

Through a spokesperson, police told NBC News that they have "no releasable information at this time."

NBC Philadelphia reported that police were working on obtaining a search warrant Monday for the Oxford Circle home.
