A woman’s family was held captive by 'tiger kidnappers' today as she was forced to remove cash from her workplace.
A gang of masked men held her husband and daughter, who is understood to be in her late teens, in their Andersonstown Road home in west Belfast and instructed her to take them the money from a shop in Park Centre.
All three were said to be shaken after their ordeal, but uninjured.
The woman’s car was later found abandoned in the Beechview Park area of the city.
Detectives are appealing for information and witnesses and are keen to hear from anyone who observed a grey coloured Fiat Punto in the Ballymurphy area early this morning.
