A businessman was reportedly kidnapped in Piraeus on Thursday morning, Greek media reported.

According to initial reports, the victim was walking towards his car parked on Akti Themistokleous when four well-built men grabbed him, pushed him forcefully inside a black Volkswagen SUV and sped away, TV station Skai reported.

Skai also said the kidnappers wore clothes bearing the insignia of the police force’s elite EKAM counter-terrorism unit.

Police said nobody has asked for ransom yet but they believe the suspects will soon contact the victim’s family.

The 50-year-old businessman is involved in imports and the supply of embassies and ships.
