Man kidnapped in broad daylight

ATV has broadcast a video recording of a man being kidnapped in Budapest in broad daylight following a scuffle last week.

The video shows three men forcing a fourth man into a car at Kőbánya-alsó train station in south Pest.

Since the April 1 incident, police have caught the driver of the car but are still looking for his three associates.

Budapest police spokesman Soma Csécsi said a man was deprived of his personal freedom and his kidnappers demanded money for his release. The man was later released.

Police have issued warrants for the arrest of Kálmán Lakatos, Sándor Szilágyi and Henrik Csömör.
