A MAN kidnapped and held hostage for six days has been freed after a police raid.

The unnamed man was tied up and held in a house in Benahavis, as kidnappers demanded €35,000 in ransom for his release.

A total of seven people have been arrested and are currently being grilled by Marbella police.

Police were alerted after relatives found the 27-year-old kidnapped man’s home trashed.

The group of kidnappers then contacted the man’s father and demanded he pay up or they would kill his son.

A meet had been set up in Puerto Banus to hand over the man for the money.

However, police thwarted the group’s plans when they spotted two of them at a San Pedro petrol station.

Following them back to a villa in Benahavis they were able to swoop in and set the hostage free.
