Alex Rodriguez’s nephew was kidnapped and held for ransom over a $600,000 Lamborghini deal gone bad, RadarOnline.com has learned. The horrific incident occurred this Wednesday night at NYC’s Marriott Marquis, police told The New York Post.
Norberto Susini reportedly follows in his uncle’s footsteps by playing minor-league baseball, but his dangerous side-hustle is what got him abducted.
According to the outlet, Susini, 29, re-sells high-priced cars in NYC.
An insider told the NY Post that A-Rod’s nephew made a deal with prospective car buyers Lamin Vucetovic, 33, and Anthony Gilkes, 30, and met them at Times Square this April 18.
Following their meetup, Vucetovic allegedly tried to break off the deal. He drove Susini to the Midtown hotel and demanded he give him back a $30,000 deposit he’d put down before the final sale. The Lamborghini was reportedly worth $600,000.
After holding Susini hostage in the hotel, Vucetovic and Gilkes then called the man’s business partners and demanded a ransom. The partners in turn alerted the cops and had the two criminals arrested later that night.
Rodriguez, 42, has yet to speak out on the scary incident.
