Four Gang Members Arrested for Kidnapping and Assault in Callosa de Segura

In a recent development, four gang members have been apprehended for their involvement in a kidnapping and assault case in Callosa de Segura. The victim, who was held captive for four days in April, managed to escape during a 60-kilometre transfer to El Campello.

Italian Gang Leader with Links to Neapolitan Camorra Crime Gang

The gang was led by a 54-year-old Italian man, who reportedly has connections to the notorious Neapolitan Camorra crime gang in his home country. The victim, despite reporting his kidnapping to the Guardia Civil, initially withheld information about being held captive due to a dispute over stolen drugs and cash from the rival gang.

Victim’s Ordeal: Four Days of Captivity and Torture

According to the victim’s account, he was captured by four armed men who inflicted knife wounds on him during his four-day ordeal. He also claimed that he was not provided with any food during his captivity.

Arrests Made in Collaboration with Italy’s Carabinieri

The Guardia Civil arrested a 55-year-old Italian woman in El Campello in April. Following this, they collaborated with Italy’s Carabinieri to track down the gang leader. The leader was apprehended in Valencia on August 1, while two Spanish nationals, aged 31 and 34, were arrested in Marbella and Mijas last month. All three men are currently in custody.

Charges Filed by Orihuela Court

The group has been charged by an Orihuela court for kidnapping, causing injury, and belonging to a criminal organisation. The case continues to unfold as more details come to light.

Related Kidnapping Cases in Spain

This incident follows a series of similar cases in Spain, including the farcical surrender of a Costa Blanca kidnap plot leader to police in Cadiz, and the violent kidnap and torture of social network founder Zaryn Dentzel. In another bizarre case, a woman faked her own kidnapping to impress her boyfriend, leading to a massive police search on Spain’s Costa Blanca.
