Don't lock yourself in the trunk without it (the cellphone, that is)

Locked into the dark trunk of a vehicle in an alleged abduction, a Mississauga man called for help — using his cellphone.

When police got the call at 8 p.m. Monday, they kept the 22-year-old on the phone while cruisers flooded the area with sirens blaring, asking him to listen and tell them whether they were getting any closer.

An hour later, officers found the vehicle in the Dundas Street West and Mavis Road area of Mississauga and freed the man from the trunk.

He was then brought to the police station, where officers questioned him on his version of the events, said Peel Regional Police Const. Craig Platt.

Platt refused to go into details, but said the man claimed he was abducted.

An ambulance was called to the scene as a precaution, but police said the man was not injured.

No arrests have been made.
