Men who abducted casino manager to be placed on ID parades

The two men who were arrested on Tuesday morning for abducting a 48-year-old woman are to be placed on identification parades on Friday.

The men, a 25-year-old and a 23-year-old, both of Never Dirty Morvant, are being held at the Four Roads Police Station.

They are to be placed on identification parades for this offence as well as other offences in the district, and once pointed out, matters will proceed against them accordingly.

The victim, a manager at a casino, was abducted on Tuesday morning as she was heading to her Diego Martin home around 4:10 am on Tuesday.

According to police reports, the woman was driving her red Hyundai Matrix along the Diego Martin Main Road when a white panel van pulled in front of her, blocking the roadway and forcing her to stop. She said three men exited the van and proceeded to enter her vehicle.

The victim said the men threatened to kill her unless she handed over the keys and security code to a casino in Woodbrook, where she works as a manager.

Fearful for her life, the victim handed over the keys and the information, before the men covered her face and drove off with her.

A report was made by an anonymous caller to the police about the incident and PCs McIntosh and Williams of the Four Roads Police Station, who were on patrol in the district, subsequently spotted the vehicle proceeding in a dangerous manner in the St. James district, and gave chase.

The vehicle was later intercepted in the vicinity of Coronation Street, St. James.

After being stopped, one of the suspects exited the hijacked vehicle and escaped, while the other two were arrested and the victim rescued.
