(Yahoo!) - In what can only be described as a bizarre crime, which police appear to have only scratched the surface of, the lead singer of a recently reunited rock band was kidnapped, attacked, robbed, and released over the weekend.

Alex Band, best known as lead singer of The Calling, was abducted in Lapeer, Michigan, early on the morning of Sunday, August 18, according to a press release from the Lapeer Police Department.

Police responded to a call from a regional hospital emergency department at 4:30 a.m. regarding the incident. Band reported "being forced into a blue colored minivan style vehicle between 3 a.m. and 4 a.m. by two male subjects" in the area of West Street and South Main Street. He claimed that he was "assaulted, robbed, and dropped off on another street within the City of Lapeer."

One of his fellow band members took him to the hospital, where he was treated and released. The incident remains under investigation.

TMZ, who was first to report the news, reports that Band was out for a stroll to the mini mart at the time of the abduction.

The Calling is best known for their 2001 hit "Wherever You Will Go." The L.A. based band broke up in 2005 but reportedly recently reunited.

Clearly, it seems like there's more to this story than we've learned so far. Why was Band targeted? What was stolen from him?

The Lapeer Police are calling for anyone who knows more information to report in to Sgt. Craig Gormley.
