DETECTIVES investigating a tiger kidnapping and robbery have released a second suspect from custody.
The 48-year-old suspect was detained on Thursday morning and was being questioned at a police station in Belfast.
However, on Thursday evening he was released unconditionally by detectives from the PSNI’s Serious and Organised Crime Branch.
Police enquiries are continuing.
A 45-year-old man, who was arrested in the city on Wednesday, was questioned at a police station in the city before being released unconditionally later that day.
Three masked and armed men entered a house in Bangor’s Bexley Road area of the town late on Thursday, January 17 threatening a father and his teen son.
The 18-year-old was taken from his home in the family car, a grey Renault Laguna, several hours later at around 4am on Friday.
He was brought to a vacant house in the Beechmount Parade area of west Belfast.
He remained there until he managed to escape and raise the alarm shortly before 9:30am.
A short time earlier, a substantial sum of money was passed to the driver of the family’s car at a filling station on the Ravenhill Road in south Belfast.
