It happened this Thursday at 9:00 p.m., when a call to the 112 emergency telephone number alerted that a person was being held in one of the rooms of the Acta Atrium Palace hotel in Barcelona. Several Mosssos d'Esquadra crews have traveled to the scene, freeing a man who was gagged and tied hand and foot.
For the kidnapping, the agents have arrested a suspect. He is a 32-year-old man who was armed, according to sources from the Corps. Agents from two Citizen Security patrols from the l'Eixample police station have arrested him. According to 'La Vanguardia', he would be of Bolivian origin, while the victim would be from Serbia. At this time, the Catalan Police are looking for two others involved, although the guests have already been able to return to the hotel.
The Kidnapping Unit of the Criminal Investigation Division (DIC) has taken charge of the case.
