A 46-year-old man was dragged out of his apartment in Schwäbisch Hall on Tuesday. The alleged perpetrators were arrested in Schönwalde-Glien (Havelland district).

After the kidnapping of a 46-year-old from Schwäbisch Hall, special police forces in Brandenburg arrested four suspects and found the kidnapped injured.

At least three of those arrested are to be brought before the magistrate on Thursday, the Heilbronn public prosecutor and the police headquarters in Aalen and Brandenburg announced on Wednesday. A possible involvement of the fourth suspect is still being examined.

The exact background of the kidnapping initially remained open. As the investigators reported, two men dragged the 46-year-old from his apartment in Baden-Württemberg into a car on Tuesday afternoon. They then drove to Brandenburg.

The suspects were arrested on Wednesday in Schönwalde-Glien (Havelland district) – more than 500 kilometers away from the place of the kidnapping. The police are continuing to investigate the case.
