JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – A man police said was heard calling for help told officers he was kidnapped and held at a Jacksonville club, according to the Sheriff's Office.

Sgt. M. Musser said officers were sent to Lincrest Drive South, where they found a man in his 30s with injuries to his face.

According to Musser, the man led officers to the Ice Lounge on Soutel Drive, which is where he told police he was held against his will.

The man was taken downtown to be interviewed.

No suspects were immediately identified. It's unclear what led to the incident.

The man's injuries were described as non-life-threatening. He was not identified.

NOTE: The Jacksonville Sheriff's Office gave News4Jax three different recaps in reference to the series of events. In one recap, JSO said the man told police he was kidnapped in Tampa and brought to Jacksonville where he was held at the club.

News4Jax is working to obtain clarification.
