The victim, a Marshalltown resident, told deputies he was driving on Highway 63 when a
pickup truck in front of him slowed down and stopped. He said when he stopped, two men exited the truck. One of them had a gun and made him leave his vehicle. They then drove off in his car, heading north. A third person drove off in the pickup, he told deputies.
