Local media report investigators have found that one of the women approached a man on Pinamar beach in November 2018 and the pair soon started a relationship.

In March 2019, the couple agreed to meet at a bar in Ituzaingo along with the woman’s sister and one of the man’s businessmen friends, neither of whom have been named.

Reports state the four stayed in the bar for around two hours before one of the women asked to be driven home.

The four got into one of the men’s Volkswagen Amarok and drove to her house. Once there, the woman reportedly asked one of the men to come out of the car to kiss her goodbye.

However, when he stepped out of the vehicle a group of armed men appeared and locked him in the boot of the car.

The other man, still inside the vehicle, had a bag placed over his head and the gang demanded 2 million ARS (36,780 GBP) from the men.

The two men reportedly said they did not have the amount in local currency but could provide 60,000 USD (47,203 GBP) and they were taken to a flat in Puerto Madero to retrieve it, accompanied by the armed men.

After the money was handed over, the victims were released but the gang reportedly stole the vehicle, along with 40,000 ARS (735 GBP) and mobile phones.

The victims reported the incident to the police and an investigation was launched.

Prosecutor Leandro Ventricelli ordered the raid of ten houses linked with the gang, arresting six men and the pair of sisters.

The suspects have been charged with armed robbery and kidnapping among other unspecified crimes. Reports say both sisters refused to give statements to investigators and the case is ongoing.
