PHOENIX - A woman was bound and gagged and thrown in the back of an SUV.

A Phoenix police officer was conducting a patrol last week near 44th Street and Van Buren when he made the discovery.

Officer Frank Marino explains, "When I got a little bit closer to the vehicle I could see a tuff of hair which was obviously somebody's head and I looked down I could see their face had duct tape on it and duct tape basically covered their mouth."

The victim was taken to a hospital. Several suspects were arrested and booked into jail.

There is still no word on a motive.
