Two suspects have been arrested in connection with the kidnapping of a 19 year old male in Athlone. The victim was found, with no visible injuries, handcuffed in a house in Grassmere Street, Athlone.


It is alleged that the 19 year old man, and a friend, stopped at the intersection of Burnley and Crawford Roads when a white sedan containing three men pulled up alongside them.

One of the assailants jumped out of the sedan and approached them. The victim was then threatened at gunpoint and forced into the sedan, which later sped off.

Later in the evening, a family member of the victim received a telephone call from the perpetrators demanding money for his release.

Police spotted a vehicle matching the description of the white sedan and arrested two occupants thereof. They were later linked to the disappearance of the young man.

The two are due to appear in the Athlone Magistrates Court on charges of kidnapping, extortion and robbery.
