Police say a suspected kidnapping was all a misunderstanding.

Friday night, a man told police his girlfriend was held at gunpoint and forced into a vehicle at a Motel 6 in Oceanside.  

The incident happened just after 9:30 p.m. Friday in the 900 block of N. Coast Highway.  

The victim's boyfriend told police that the suspects drove up to the couple in a Chevrolet Spark and forced his girlfriend into the car.  

Police looked into the report and determined it was a misunderstanding. They did not release further details.
