A BOY IS being held by Gardaí in Limerick in connection with an armed tiger kidnapping last weekend.

Gardaí say that the incident took place last Sunday at around 11.15pm when a man in his late teens answered the door to two armed teens who entered the house.

The man, reportedly aged 19, was forced into a 4×4.

The Irish Examiner, which carries the story today, reports that the man was then driven around for an hour and a half and was told he would have to get money from a post office owned by relatives.

Gardaí say that the man was brought to a field in a Donoughmore where he managed to flee and notify nearby Gardaí.

A boy, reportedly aged 16, was arrested a short time later under section 30 of the Offences Against the State Act and is currently being held at Henry Street Garda Station in Limerick.
