ORLANDO, Fla., May 9 (UPI) — A birthday surprise went wrong as Florida police surrounded two teenagers after bystanders thought they were witnessing a kidnapping, authorities said.

Courtney Rogers was driving her friend Briana Vega to Vega’s surprise party but was running late, so she pulled into a restaurant parking lot to put a blindfold on Vega, WOFL-TV, Orlando, Fla., reported Wednesday.

Diners in the restaurant, thinking there was a kidnapping in progress, called police, who arrived in minutes and surrounded Rogers and Vega.
