Former Australian spinner Stuart MacGill kidnapped and released later, 4 suspects arrested
Stuart MacGill is a former Australian spinner who played Tests and One-Day Internationals for Australia. He was prominently successful in the longest format, claiming 208 wickets in 44 matches.
Former Australian spinner Stuart MacGill suffered a scare of his life after he was allegedly kidnapped by three men at gunpoint in Sydney last month before being released. Meanwhile, four suspects have been arrested by the New South WalesPolic in connection to the kidnapping.
According to NSW Police, 50-year-old MacGill was held by the kidnappers for an hour on April 14 before three men pushed him into a car. He was taken outside the city to an unknown location and property, which was about an hour's drive. There, he was imperilled and assailed by a gun before being eventually released.
As far as the arrests are concerned, the four men arrested on early Wednesday happen to be aged 27, 29, 42 and 46. "I know it was only an hour that he was held, but it would have been a horribly frightful hour to endure," Anthony Holton, NSW Police superintendent, was quoted as saying to the reporters, reports AFP.
Holton also added that MacGill was "still quite shaken" by the incident while he also happened to know one of the kidnappers. Meanwhile, the men were expected to appear in a Sydney court on Wednesday, with charges likely to be pressed.
MacGill represented Australia in Tests and One-Day Internationals. He attained notable success in the longest format, claiming 208 wickets in 44 matches.
