Kathimerini English - - Front Page -

Po­lice in Thes­sa­loniki yesterday were ques­tion­ing a 70-yearold man and his grand­daugh­ter’s 20-yearold fiance on charges of ab­duc­tion af­ter they al­legedly kid­napped a 46-year-old garage owner from Ioan­nina and held him in a trailer out­side Thes­sa­loniki, ap­par­ently the first stage of a plan to de­mand a ran­som for his re­turn. The ab­duc­tion oc­curred late on Sun­day when the two sus­pects trav­eled to Ioan­nina in an ap­par­ent bid to set­tle a fi­nan­cial dis­pute with the 46-year-old. When the dis­cus­sion failed to go as planned, they as­saulted him with pep­per spray, hand­cuffed him and bun­dled him into the truck of their vic­tim’s fa­ther. They drove him to Thes­sa­loniki and put him in the trailer but the 46-year-old man­aged to es­cape and alerted po­lice, who ar­rested the sus­pects.
