Dramatic CCTV footage shows woman being abducted and robbed in Manchester

The Greater Manchester Police have released CCTV footage from a dramatic kidnapping and robbery in Astley on 19 September. A woman was grabbed by two men off the street, forced into a van, and then taken to the Old Boathouse pub on Higher Green Lane where they demanded money from her. She was punched twice in the head, and the men threatened to throw her in a nearby canal. The two suspects then escaped in the van, which was later found burnt out. Police are now appealing for witnesses. Dec 13, 2016
