Man is kidnapped on Dublin street
Police in Dublin have said they are very concerned about a man attacked and kidnapped in the city on Thursday.
The victim, a single man from Blanchardstown, was chased and assaulted by a number of men on Russell Avenue in East Wall at about 16:45 BST.
He was bundled into a car and driven away and has not been seen since.
It is understood he may have been attacked because he owes money to a criminal.
Detectives have appealed for information about a Dublin-registered 2005 black Volkswagen with tinted windows and spoked wheels used to take the man away.
The car had a spider motif on the back window.
A forensic examination identified blood at the scene and detectives have been carrying out house-to-house inquiries in the area and examining CCTV footage.
