Disturbing footage of kidnapping emerges
Shocking CCTV footage has captured the terrifying moment a man was bundled into a white van after being kidnapped from his southwest Sydney home while a woman screamed his name in the background.
The footage shows the man being confronted by a group of people outside his Punchbowl home about 9.30pm on Sunday.
The group of masked men are yelling and arguing before the man is dragged out and bundled into a white van that is waiting on the street.
It then speeds away.
A woman is screaming the man's name, while the person taking the video (from another building) gasps in the background.
A witness alerted police.
The victim had since returned home, NSW Police said in a statement.
"About 9.25pm on Sunday a 30-year-old man was confronted by a group of men at a home in Punchbowl," police said.
"The men, who had their faces concealed, grabbed the man before dragging him into the street and forcing him into a van which was parked outside his home.
"Officers from Campsie Police Area Command attended and established a crime scene."
The investigation is ongoing.
