A MAN is due to appear in court today after being charged in connection with a kidnapping in Ipswich, police have said.
Gibril Seray-Wurie, 30, of Lone Barn Court, Ipswich, was arrested yesterday and has been charged with kidnap, robbery, possession of an offensive weapon in a public place, burglary and assault following the incident on Monday.
A man in his 20s was kidnapped and burned at an address in the town.
Police said a man suffered burns to his arms, chest and stomach when he was kidnapped at knifepoint, driven to a house and blindfolded.
The man, who has been named locally as ‘John’, was parked in a silver Mercedes in Bell Close, Ipswich, at 3.15pm on Monday when two men got into the car and threatened him with a knife.
He was forced into the back of a car and driven to a house where he was held captive for about three hours. The captors also poured boiling water over him.
On Monday a woman arrested on suspicion of conspiracy to kidnap was released on police bail pending further enquiries.
