Ipswich: Woman Arrested After Man Is Kidnapped

A woman's been arrested after a man was kidnapped and burnt in Ipswich.

Police have arrested a woman following a kidnapping in Ipswich on Monday.

Officers raided two properties in the town this morning, one of which is thought to be where the kidnapped man was held.

A 23-year-old woman from Ipswich was arrested this morning on suspicion of conspiracy to kidnap and has been taken to the Martlesham Police Investigation Centre.

On Monday the victim was parked in a silver Mercedes in Bell Close, when two men got into the car and threatened him with a knife. He was forced into the back of the car and driven to a terrace house in the town.

Inside the house he was blindfolded and asked for money. His kidnappers also burnt him and he's now been released from hospital after having his injuries treated.

The victim was later given his car keys and allowed to leave, but when he got home he found that his property in Cemetery Road had also been burgled.
