Lawmen question businessman after abduction

Police are investigating the kidnapping of a 26-year-old businessman, while his family is thanking God that he was returned to them safe and sound.

Kemar Trotman of Green Hill, St Michael was up to tonight being questioned by police about his ordeal which lasted almost eight hours.

Four masked men allegedly abducted Trotman, who buys and sells vehicles, while he was outside his home repairing a car around midday today.

His family was shaken by the incident which they said they could not understand.

But at 7:42 p.m., relatives who had gathered at the District “A” Police Station breathed a collective sigh of relief when lawmen returned with him.

Some family members reported that he had been found in Ellerton, St George.

Tears flowed freely as the family huddled around and embraced Trotman as he emerged from the police vehicle.

His father Peter Trotman was the first to embrace him.

While he did not want to go too much into what had transpired, he said he was glad his son was back safe.

“It’s a huge sense of relief,” he told Barbados TODAY.

His mother, Joy Trotman, who greeted him with a big hug and tears of relief and joy, also said she was glad Kemar was returned safely.

“I was praying the whole evening that he would be found alive because you never know what would happen when people get desperate,” she said, wiping away tears.

“I am just glad he is back with us.”

When contacted by Barbados TODAY, police public relations officer Acting Assistant Superintendent David Welch would only confirm that Trotman was being interviewed by police.

No one had been arrested in connection with his abduction.

    I am so glad that i grew up in Barbados at the time that i did, because all that FREE Education seems to have made ALL BAJANS of certain Eras Foolish, they don’t seem to think independently for themselves anymore.
    Why would ANYONE want to believe or even think, that for ABSOLUTELY no reason at all, IN the Middle of the Day, FOUR MASKED MEN would walk up to Kemar Trotman of Green Hill, St Michael, outside his home repairing a car, Kidnap him and take him across the Island to Ellerton, St George, For no other reason than it being a fun thing to do ????
    To all who is Believing this Story/Fable, I Own a NICE piece of Property in The Florida Everglades that is up for Sale, any Buyers????
    on the other hand, i am extremely glad and Happy that he was RETURNED to his Family with all his Varying Parts intact
    Happy NEW Year to Kemar and his Family and also to all and Sundry
