Man abducted from his home in Southsea

Police are appealing for witnesses after a man was abducted from a house in Southsea in the early hours of  last Sunday 28.
 It is alleged that three men targeted a house in Beach Road and assaulted the 59-year-old victim before demanding money from him.

The men drove the victim in a three-door light-grey Peugeot 206 car to a cash point machine in St Catherine’s Street, where they attempted to withdraw money from his bank account.

After being unsuccessful in their attempt to get cash from the cash point, the men drove the victim to a car park on Long Curtain Road, Clarence Esplanade.  At this location the suspects threw the victim into the sea.  The man received minor injuries during the abduction.
