Police are appealing for witnesses following a kidnap in Milton Keynes, and have released an image of a vehicle as part of the appeal.
The appeal relates to an incident between 4pm and 4.30pm on Tuesday (19/1) in the Fullers Slade area of Milton Keynes.
During the incident, a 19-year-old man was walking along Woolmans in Fullers Slade when he was approached by a man who told him to get into a car that was parked nearby.
Inside the car were another two men and the car drove away with the victim inside. Whilst in the car, the three offenders demanded money and punched him a number of times to the head.
At around 4.30pm the car stopped in Condor Close, Eaglestone and the victim got out of the car. The offenders then drove off in the direction of Golden Drive.
The victim sustained minor injuries and did not require hospital treatment.
The offenders are described as three black men and the car depicted is a white Volkswagen Tiguan or T-Roc.
