Pensioner beaten and snatched from his Freeport home

A Freeport pensioner was beaten and abducted from his home on Sunday night.

The 69-year-old victim told police that he was at home at Arena Road around 9:30 pm, when a group of people, armed with various objects, entered through the front door, which was open and beat him about the body.

The man said he was then grabbed and forced into a white Hyundai pickup van and taken to a secluded bushy area along Siewdass Road, Freeport, where he was dropped off.

The suspects then escaped.

Police are investigating.
