A 20-YEAR-OLD woman has been jailed after kidnapping a man outside a Catford McDonald's.

Katchi Richards and a 17-year-old, who cannot be named for legal reasons, were among a group who approached their victim, aged 18, as he went back to his car outside the Rushey Green fast food branch.

He was threatened with a gun and knife before being forced into the vehicle and then driven around south-east London.

During the four hour ordeal, they took his belt, trainers and watch before letting him go and driving off in his car.

Richards, aged 20, from Tower Hamlets was jailed for three years for robbery and three for kidnap, to run concurrently.

The teenager received two years for kidnap and two years for robbery, to run concurrently.

Investigating officer Detective Constable Shukeil Mandalia of Lewisham CID said: "The victim was subjected to a harrowing ordeal by suspects who believed they had a right to take from him whatever they wanted."
