Man abducted, beaten in Derry and taken across border

A 28-year-old man has been beaten by three masked men who abducted him and took him across the border to Donegal.

He was walking in the Circular Road in Derry at about 930pm on 10 May when a red car pulled up alongside.

The masked men pulled him into the car, then took him to Springfield Road and beat him with a bat.

They then abandoned him in Muff in Co. Donegal. He was treated in hospital for his injuries.

Police were only made aware of the incident yesterday evening.

Foyle MLA, Pat Ramsey, says this is another incident that paints a bad picture of Derry....
