TMZ broke this story. Here is an excerpt:

We're told ... during the stroll, a van pulled up alongside Alex and the people inside snatched the singer right off the street -- then proceeded to beat the crap out of him.

 Eventually, sources say, the abductors dumped the badly beaten rocker on some nearby train tracks.

 We're told ... another member of the band noticed 32-year-old Alex had gone missing later that morning and assembled a search party. The singer was discovered a short time later.

 Alex survived the incident -- but his current condition is unclear.
