A tiger kidnapping
is the slang term for an abduction
done in order to aid in a robbery. It is called a tiger
kidnapping because of the predatory stalking
that precedes it.
A person of importance to the victim will be held hostage as collateral until the victim has met the criminal's demands.
Tiger Kidnappings occur in many different countries, but are more predominant in the United Kingdom, Republic of Ireland and Belgium.
