Alex Band Attack

Cops Scouring

Surveillance Footage

EXCLUSIVE

0819_alex_band_getty2Cops in Lapeer, Michigan have already collected surveillance footage from the area where "The Calling" singer Alex Band was allegedly attacked this week ... and are combing through the video looking for an image of the abductors, TMZ has learned.

Law enforcement tells us ... the police BELIEVE Alex's story -- and are treating the situation as an abduction and robbery.

TMZ broke the story ... Alex claims he was snatched off the street around 3AM Sunday morning by unknown assailants who beat the crap out of him before dumping him on some train tracks.

Law enforcement sources tell us ... investigators are planning to release a description of the suspects later today.

Stay tuned ...

TMZ, i will NEVER make fun of you again. Here it is just minutes after you posted the story, and you already have a photo of one of the degenerate Meth heads who beat up that musician.
.
I mean, just look at him, a scraggly beard, dirty, filthy hair, a crazed out on kitchen made Meth look on his face. Yep, s***my looking people like this should be locked up so the rest of us don't have to be reminded that garbage like this exists because . . .
.
What's that? This isn't a photo of some homeless, drug addicted bum, but is really Alex Band? This really isn't one of the crazed degenerates who abducted him?

Never Mind.

What muggers abduct someone to steal from him and dump him somewhere else? It's a whole different set of rules when you abduct. This is a publicity stunt.

I love how many made up stories we find on here that are just marketing ploys to promote "artists" no one heard of before. I'm interested, how much does it cost?

Alex's dad was a film producer named Charles Band who had lots of mob connections. I worked for him in the 90's and he had a bad reputation for skipping out on his debts. My guess is that this all had to do with daddy.

I was looking to see if they caught these guys yet and haven't been able to find anything. There is a newspaper article but you have to subscriber to the paper to read it. Does anyone know what this says - http://thecountypress.mihomepaper.com/news/2013-08-25/Front_Page/Calling_out_for_answers.html
