Witnesses sought for alleged kidnap

Detectives in Hertfordshire are appealing to members of the public in Nottingham who may have witnessed an alleged kidnapping on Friday 16th November.

It is suspected that a woman in her 20s and of Asian appearance was forced into a car by a man close to the Lister Hospital in Stevenage.

The vehicle, a blue BMW with the registration plate EO03 VYC, was then driven to Nottingham, where it is claimed that the woman called for help from passers-by. However the offender has told them that everything was ok and they left.

The incident ended in Hertfordshire again at around midnight. The victim was uninjured.

A 27-year-old man from Stevenage has been arrested on suspicion of kidnap and released on bail while investigations continue.

"We are appealing to anyone who thinks they may have seen or spoken to the man and woman at the time to contact me. The information they have may be vital to our investigation."
