(KGTV) - The nephew of baseball star Alex Rodriguez was kidnapped and held for ransom in New York Thursday after a deal involving a Lamborghini, various media outlets reported.
Rodriguez’ nephew, 29-year-old Norberto Susini, met two men at the Marriott Marquis in Times Square to sell them the vehicle, WABC reported. The men then demanded Susini return a $35,000 deposit but he refused.
WABC reported the men then held Susini against his will in a hotel room. They demanded ransom from Susini’s business partners, who called police.
The men turned themselves in at 4 a.m, according to WABC.
Susini is a player in independent baseball leagues. His uncle has not publicly commented on the kidnapping.
