Thames Valley Police is appealing for witnesses following an incident of kidnap in Milton Keynes.
Between 6pm and 7pm on Friday 30 November the victim, a 34-year-old man, was called to recover a vehicle at garages between Farthing Grove and Broadlands, in Netherfield.
When he arrived he located a man with a silver Volkswagen Golf but was then set upon by a group of men. They forced him in to a grey Volkswagen Transporter van in which he was assaulted.
He was driven to a residential property in Pennyland, from where property including a wallet, a mobile phone and car keys for a white Volkswagen Golf, were stolen from the address.
