Australian Armed Police said on Wednesday they arrested four men in connection with the armed kidnapping of former Test Launcher Stuart MacGill. The men were detained in a pre-dawn raid in Sydney, following the kidnapping of the cricketer in the affluent town on the Lower North Shore last month. MacGill was hailed as a talented bowler and played 44 tests for Australia, but he was unlucky for his career to coincide with that of Shane Warne, ranked by many as the best spinner of all time. .

Police said on April 14, the 50-year-old was confronted by three men at an intersection and put into a vehicle.

He was taken to a property an hour outside of town and, according to police, was assaulted and threatened with a gun before being released after the hour-long ordeal.

Local media reported that MacGill’s kidnappers demanded a ransom.


After “thorough investigations”, a police strike force and riot officers arrested four men, aged 27, 29, 42 and 46, in the early hours of Wednesday.
