POLICE have freed a young Swedish man who had been kidnapped from the street, beaten up and had a ransom demanded from relatives.
Malaga cops say the victim had been lured by the promise of a party only to end up held captive by a 26-year-old Moroccan man and 27-year-old Spanish woman.
Officers freed him after neighbours heard the victim’s cries for help at 4am last night (March 15).
They found the young man suffering from a bloody head and injured leg.
Investigations revealed that he had been walking through the heart of Malaga when he was approached by the woman and invited to a party in Calle Victoria. But once inside he was beaten and his attackers demanded €3,000 cash, first from the victim, then later by phone from a relative.
The victim remains in hospital this morning while the alleged attackers have been arrested on charges of kidnapping and causing grievous bodily harm.
