Witness appeal after potential kidnapping in Dagenham

A passer-by has described seeing a man being violently kidnapped in Dagenham.

The member of the public said the man appeared to be punched in the head and face by one attacked and was told to get into a car.

When he refused to get into the vehicle the two attackers appeared to force him into the dark-coloured car and drove off with the victim inside.

The incident allegedly happened at around 11.50pm on April 24 at Valence Avenue near to Chadwell Heath Station car park.

Anyone who witnessed this incident but has not yet come forward should contact Det Con Maria Hartshorn of Barking and Dagenham CID by dialling 101 or by calling Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
