TAIPEI (Taiwan News) – Police in Taoyuan City freed a Vietnamese man abducted and arrested four of his compatriots, reports said Friday (August 9).

The man, a migrant worker, had reportedly been unable to pay back gambling debts, resulting in four other Vietnamese nationals kidnapping him and torturing him at a site in Hsinchu County, the Central News Agency reported.

After police in the Taoyuan City district of Luzhu learned of the case on August 3, they formed a special taskforce to locate the missing man.

On Thursday (August 8) afternoon, they attacked the site where they believed the man was being kept prisoner, and they freed him unharmed and arrested four suspects, including one woman.
