Police have issued an appeal after an attempted abduction in Craigavon.

Police said three men tried to abduct a man in the Meadowbrook area at 3am on Sunday morning.

The PSNI said: “Do you live in Meadowbrook, Craigavon, or surrounding area?

“A man was grabbed by three other males who tried to abduct him, bundling him into the back of a blue van and attempting to tie him with cable ties. Thankfully, he was able to fight them off and got away, alerting us.

“Did you see a blue van in the area overnight on Saturday into Sunday morning? Have you heard chat of who is responsible? Whoever they are, regardless of their motives, clearly has no respect for the rule of law and have only bully boy tactics as an option. These sorts of people should not be allowed to operate within our community.
