The young victim, who is the ex-girlfriend of one of the two men, was also violently beaten.

Two young men aged 21 attempted to kidnap an 18-year-old girl in Arlon, Sudpresse reports. Arlon's public prosecutor's office later confirmed the incident. The victim is the ex-girlfriend of one of the two would-be kidnappers.

After a painful breakup, the ex-boyfriend and his accomplice waited for the young girl to come out of school. Around 4.30 pm, they forced her to get into their car and drove towards the motorway. The current boyfriend of the victim alerted the police.

Police then stopped the car near Vaux-sur-Sûre. The victim was violently beaten during the drive. She was later hospitalised with serious injuries.

The two young men were arrested and are awaiting trial for attempted kidnapping.
