Armed robbers dressed as policemen broke into a Bitcoin-trader’s home in Drenthe, the Netherlands, and tortured him for an hour in front of his four-year-old daughter. It is reported by De Telegraaf.
According to the publication, as a result of torture, the victim received serious injuries. The Dutch police have already formed a group of 15 law enforcement officers whose task is to find and detain the criminals. Note that so large groups usually work on murder investigations.
It is not yet known what exactly the robbers extorted and whether the digital assets of the trader were stolen.
In De Telegraaf they added that the victim worked in Italy and Thailand, and bought a house in Drenthe without a mortgage.
