Thames Valley Police have revealed a man has been assaulted after being kidnapped in Milton Keynes.
It all began sometime between 6-7pm on Friday 30th November when 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 found a man next to a silver VW Golf but was then set upon by a group of men.
They forced him in to a grey VW Transporter van and beat him up inside.
He was driven to a residential property in Pennyland.
A wallet, a mobile phone and car keys for a white VW Golf were stolen from the address.
The offenders left the scene and the victim returned to the garages in Netherfield to collect his own vehicle later the same evening.
But a fight broke out between the victim and the owner of the silver VW Golf (the one meant to be recovered earlier in the day), and a group of men.
The victim sustained bruising during what happened but didn't need to go to hospital.
Then overnight the following Wednesday to Thursday (6th December) the white VW Golf was stolen from the driveway of the property in Pennyland.
Investigating officer Detective Constable Hollie Cromarty, of Milton Keynes Force CID, said:
"Detectives are investigating this serious incident and I would like to appeal to anyone who has any information about what happened to contact police.
I would particularly like to speak to anyone who noticed anything suspicious or unusual in the area of the garages between Farthing Grove and Broadlands, in Netherfield, between 6pm and 7pm on Friday 30 November.
If you have any details please come forward and speak to police.”
