A 33-YEAR-OLD man was the victim of a kidnapping and robbery last week.
The incident took place on Wednesday shortly after 1.10pm when the victim was driven against his will from outside the Esso garage and petrol station in Draycott Road, Chiseldon, towards Marlborough.
He was then robbed and beaten up before being taken from the vehicle and left outside a farm in Ogbourne St George. A member of the public found him and contacted the police.
As a result of police enquiries, a 25-year-old male was arrested on Thursday in connection with this incident. He has been charged with robbery and kidnap.
Officers are keen to hear from anyone who was in the vicinity of the Esso garage or in the Ogbourne St George area between 1pm and 1.30pm on Wednesday.
They are keen to hear from anyone around Chiseldon or close to the Memorial Hall to come forward.
Anyone who may have seen anything suspicious or a silver Ford Fusion vehicle being driven from the direction of Chiseldon to Marlborough, is asked to contact Wiltshire Police on 101 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111 where information can be left anonymously.
