Suffolk Police have appealed on tonight’s BBC TV Crimewatch for information about two men wanted in connected with a kidnapping in Drinkstone.
Daniel Patterson and Zebadiah Rose, pictured are wanted in connection with the incident which happened in September 2009.
The victim, a man in his 30s, reported to police that on Sunday 13 September 2009 he was threatened at a property in Drinkstone by four men, alleged to have been armed with a shotgun, and that he was forced to get into a car and was driven to London.
At a London flat, the victim was tied up and blindfolded but managed to escape in the early hours of the following morning.
Police later arrested two men who were convicted of kidnap in July 2010 at Ipswich Crown Court.
Farad Shabazz, aged 34 years and from Kilburn, London, was sentenced to eight years for kidnap, blackmail, false imprisonment and possession of a firearm with intent and Nathan Carty6, aged 25 and from Stockwell, London, was sentenced to six years for kidnap, blackmail and false imprisonment.
Continuing inquiries led police to believe that Daniel Patterson, 27, and Zebadiah Rose (also known as Jason Walker) aged 25/26 years are also suspected of being involved in these offences.
Temporary Detective Inspector Trevor Prior from the Joint Norfolk and Suffolk Major Investigation Team said: “We have carried out many lines of enquiry since the kidnapping incident four years ago and since the conviction of the two men in 2010.
“Our enquiries have led us to suspect that Daniel Patterson and Zebadiah Rose had involvement with this violent kidnapping offence and we would ask anyone who knows the whereabouts of these two to contact us.
“We hope that by featuring the two men as wanted on BBC Crimewatch someone will come forward with information which will help us locate them.”
Anyone with information in relation to the whereabouts of Daniel Patterson and Zebadiah Rose are asked to contact the Joint Norfolk and Suffolk Major Investigation Team at Suffolk Police on 101 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555111.
