Eleven people are in custody after a man was allegedly kidnapped following a home invasion in Sydney’s southwest.

He suffered minor injuries and was later treated by paramedics.

The younger man was forced from the home and into a car outside.

Investigations tracked the group to a warehouse on Marigold St in Revesby where Police set up an exclusion zone.

Following negotiations, the 37-year-old man was released before being taken to hospital with head and facial injuries.

A short time later the warehouse was set on fire before eight men were arrested by officers from the Tactical Operations Unit.

Another three men arrived at the scene and were also taken into custody.

Charges are expected to be laid this afternoon.
