Tiger kidnapping

Tiger kidnapping

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.
