Gang Jailed For Kidnapping And Torturing Victim

Three Black Country men and a woman have been given jail terms totalling more than 22 years after they kidnapped a man and tortured him for 11 hours.

The 25-year-old victim, whom the gang believed had raided a Stourbridge boxing club, was beaten and threatened with a Samurai sword before being repeatedly dunked into a tank of water. 

He was then dumped semi-conscious in a country lane near Old Halesonians Rugby Football Club.

Before the court were 29-year-old Ricky Green, of no fixed address, Asa Cartwright, aged 30, of Norfolk Road, Wollaston, his 23-year-old sister Charlotte Cartwright, of Ashton Park Drive, Brierley Hill,  and 26-year-old Jak Skeldon, of Holy Cross Lane, Belbroughton. 

A fourth man, 25 year-old Ashleigh Round of Wynall Lane Wollescote, was also jailed for his part in the affair.
