Band told investigators he was walking down a street about 3 a.m. Sunday when two men forced him into a blue minivan, according to a police statement.

The singer "reported being assaulted, robbed, and dropped off on another street," according to Lapeer Police Sgt. Craig Gormley.

Another is white and about 6-foot-4 inches. Police say the suspect was polite and very apologetic during the ordeal.

Police say a third was driving the van and he had a darker complexion.
