Aussie test cricket great Stuart MacGill kidnapped, held for ransom

FOUR people have been arrested in New South Wales after allegedly kidnapping former Australian test cricketer Stuart MacGill and holding him for ransom.

NSW Police have confirmed a 50-year-old was confronted by a 46-year-old man in Cremorne, in Sydney’s Lower North Shore, back on April 14.

He was then approached by two other men, who forced him into a car and drove him to a property at Bringelly, where he was allegedly assaulted by the two men as well as another unknown man, and threatened at gunpoint.


He was eventually released around an hour later but detectives weren’t notified of the incident for a week.

Detectives from the State Crime Command’s Robbery and Serious Crime Squad launched an investigation and this morning carried out sweeping raids across Sutherland, Caringbah, Brighton Le-Sands, Banksia and Marrickville.

Four men aged 27, 29, 42 and 46 have since been arrested and are awaiting charges.

Police will provide an update this afternoon.
