Three people are now facing charges after witnesses said they saw two men kidnap a woman.
But it turns out all three of them were only pretending.
All this allegedly happened in Plainfield, Connecticut, not far from the Rhode Island border.
Witnesses said the two men put the woman in a car trunk. She was bound with electrical tape.
Police said the suspects' goal was to alarm people enough to notify police.
Danny Vinal, 21, Mark Reasoner, 22, and Harley-Jane Davidson, 19, are scheduled to appear in court later this month.
