Ex-Australia cricketer Stuart MacGill kidnapped and overwhelmed: Reports | Cricket News

SYDNEY: Australian police arrested 4 males in daybreak raids on Wednesday in connection with the alleged kidnap and assault of former Test cricketer Stuart MacGill, native media reported.

Reports mentioned the 50-year-old former leg-spinner was allegedly kidnapped from close to his residence in Sydney on April 14 and brought to a different a part of the town where he was overwhelmed and threatened with a gun.

“About 8pm on Wednesday 14 April 2021, a 50-year-old man was allegedly confronted by a 46-year-old man (in) Cremorne,” New South Wales Police mentioned in a press release that didn’t establish the sufferer.

“A short time later the pair were approached by two other men, forcing the older man into a vehicle. He was then driven to a property at Bringelly, where the two men, plus another unknown man, allegedly assaulted the 50-year-old man and threatened him with a firearm. About an hour later, the man was driven to the Belmore area and released.”

Police mentioned the incident had been reported on April 20, prompting an investigation by the Robbery and Serious Crime Squad.

“Strike force detectives, with assistance from Raptor Squad and the Public Order and Riot Squad, arrested four men – aged 27, 29, 42 and 46 – from 6am today,” the police assertion added. “The men were taken to local police stations where charges are expected to be laid.”

MacGill performed 44 Tests for Australia between 1998 and 2008 and possibly would have earned many extra caps had his profession not coincided with that of fellow spin-bowler Shane Warne.
