Gardai in Dublin are investigating an alleged kidnapping in Finglas last night.

At around 2:20am this morning, Gardai stopped and searched a van on the town's main street and found three men inside, one of whom was a 32-year-old man who was being held against his will.

It's understood the man had his mobile phone and wallet stolen, after which the two occupants of the van ordered him into the vehicle.

The man had been walking home from work when the incident happened.

Two men in their 20s are being questioned at Finglas Garda Station and the van has been seized for forensic examination.
