Two women were abducted from their home in a terrifying tiger kidnapping in Dublin this morning.
The two women were taken from their home at Gracefield Road in the Artane area at approximately 5am this morning in a white or silver Volkswagen Caddy with a partial 09-D registration number. They were found bound and tied in a van in Co Meath following the incident.
