THREE men have been arrested after kidnapping a woman in broad daylight in Sevilla. 

The French, Portuguese and Algerian trio brazenly grabbed the woman and forced her into a car along the Alameda de Hercules, one of the most busy and popular strips of the regional capital.

The woman was enjoying a drink with friends after work on August 28 when the men pulled up in their car and called her over.

As she approached, one of the men opened their door and forced her into the car before the driver sped off, travelling in the wrong direction.

The woman put up such a strong fight that the driver crashed into a row of cars some 200 metres from where she had been taken.

The kidnappers fled the scene but were caught within five minutes after witnesses had called police.

Investigators later found out the three men have histories of violent crimes and drug trafficking in France.

They are being held without bail.
