Four arrested over kidnapping of Carlos Tevez’s father

Argentine police have arrested three men and a woman over the July kidnapping of the father of star footballer Carlos Tevez, judicial sources said on Saturday.

The group had planned only to rob Mr Segundo Tevez, but demanded a ransom for his release after discovering he was the father of the Argentina international footballer.

The adoptive father of the Juventus striker was attacked in his vehicle on July 29 near Buenos Aires and detained for eight hours.

His family reportedly paid 600,000 pesos (S$89,000) for his release.

The four people arrested are aged between 22 and 27. Two of them are Paraguayan and are brother and sister, a source was quoted as saying by the Telam news agency.
