The head of the Mormon Argentina Buenos Aires West Mission, US citizen David Paul Robertson, was kidnapped, robbed, and finally released by armed men that attacked him while he was driving in Ciudadela, in Greater Buenos Aires.

The 52-old religious leader was ambushed as he drove his vehicle near Acceso Oeste and General Paz avenue by four gunmen who took him hostage in his own car and robbed him. They took his wallet, cellphone and a notebook and drove him off to Liniers neighbourhood, in Buenos Aires City, where Robertson was released unharmed.

The incident took place last Friday but became public today a day after the US Embassy in Buenos Aires had issued a message for its citizens warning against “crimes reported to the embassy,” recommending them to “always be aware of their surroundings, maintain a high level of vigilance, and take appropriate steps to enhance their personal security.”

Buenos Aires police forces have found Robertson’s car abandoned in Lomas del Mirador, La Matanza district, and are working on fingerprints and security cameras recordings that might lead to the attackers.
