Arrests for alleged kidnapping of former cricketer Stuart MacGill


Four men have been arrested after kidnapping former Australian cricketer Stuart MacGill at gunpoint in Sydney in April.

Police allege MacGill was approached by a man near the intersection of Parraween and Winne streets in Cremorne at around 8 p.m. on April 14, before two other men appeared and allegedly forced the former test player to climb into a car.

Macgill, 50, was then taken to a property in Bringelly, west Sydney, where he was allegedly assaulted and threatened with a gun.
