Two men have been jailed after they were convicted of kidnapping a woman on New Years’ Day in High Wycombe.

Ion-Bobi Stavarache, aged 26, and Gica Puruciuc, aged 25, both of Colbourne Road, High Wycombe, were sentenced to five years imprisonment and four years imprisonment respectively.

At around 3.30am on January 1 this year, the victim, who was 19 years old, left the Signature night club in High Wycombe to make her way home with her sister.

The two men followed the victim and her sister onto a train before getting off behind her at Princes Risborough station.

The victim then became separated from her sister and the two men followed her along an unlit street where they grabbed her.

They then took her along Park Street into a car park. After a struggle, the victim managed to escape and run away, escaping with cuts and bruises.

The two men were both arrested on 24 January and charged on 26 January.

Investigating officer Detective Constable Emily Addison of Force CID based at High Wycombe police station, said: “This was a frightening ordeal for the victim where she was followed and targeted by two unknown men.

“The dedication of the investigation team and the support of the victim and her family in this case has enabled us to bring Stavarache and Puruciuc to justice, and they will now serve prison sentences as a result.”
