Gun cops sent to Caldy after man is attacked in his home
ARMED police were sent to an exclusive Merseyside village after a man was attacked.
The 23-year-old victim was taken to hospital with facial injuries after being assaulted inside a multi-million pound property in Wirral.
It is understood he told police he was attacked by a group of men. It is understood the incident was the result of a business dispute.
Police were today quizzing a 50-year-old man from Caldy who was arrested on suspicion of kidnap.
The alarm was raised at around 4.30pm on Saturday in Croft Drive West, Caldy.
A neighbour said: “I heard screaming and shouting. When I walked to the end of my driveway the road was full of police.
“They told to go back inside and keep the windows closed. They were not letting anyone in or out of the road. And the helicopter was overhead.”
The victim, who also suffered a hand injury during the incident, was released from hospital over the weekend.
Two police vehicles were parked outside the property yesterday.
Officers told the ECHO that the house remained a crime scene and that the owner was not at home.
A Bentley, thought to be the home owner’s, was parked on the gravel drive near a carved wooden alligator.
