Paula Brittany Fritz thought she was going to go spend time with her friend Sunday night.

Fritz ended up a captive to four men armed with guns, and never knew why.

She declined to go on camera Monday, but told ABC 36 that the men holding her hostage interrogated her about the whereabouts of a man she says she never even knew.

She also says they kept telling her they were going to murder her.

Luckily police say her brother called her after getting worried when she was gone for a while.

Her captors allowed her to answer. That's when she kept saying "I promise" throughout the conversation, which were code words meaning she was in danger.

Police say the car was spotted just down the road from the Richmond Police Station on the Robert R. Martin Bypass.

James C. Fleming, David West, Marcus Rogers and  Antwon Brown were all arrested and charged with kidnapping and multiple drug trafficking charges.

Fritz says she was not physically harmed, But says she shook-up by her near-death experience.

She says she didn't recognize any of the suspects, but says her friend that picked her up did.

Police say that friend is being investigated for their role in this kidnapping.
