A 13-year-old boy fled a group of kidnappers on Monday after they grabbed him from a bus stop, assaulted him in a vacant house, and sent messages to his mother threatening his life, according to a report.
When Zavion Parker stepped off the school bus in Houston, Texas, on Monday afternoon, a group of five teenagers led by an adult male forced him into a car and drove him to a vacant house where they assaulted him, ABC13 reported.

Parker said a group of teens forced him in a car with an adult male behind the wheel.
They drove him to an empty house, where they punched him and took his jacket, shoes, phone and keys, he told police.
His mother Michelle Lee, called the police when the 13-year-old failed to return home and later received messages from his phone number that detailed plans to “kill him.”
Carmouche said Lee later showed her the text messages, which read, “We’re going to hang him. You’re going to find him in the morning.”
Parker told ABC13 he managed to flee when the group went into another room to load what he thought was a gun.
Carmouche pulled over when she spotted Parker, who was running barefoot, she said.
Parker, who appeared to be in shock, also had scratches on his face and a torn shirt, according to Carmouche.
She called the police, and investigators are now on the hunt for the suspected driver, described as a heavy built white man with racial slur tattooed on his arm.
