The horrific ordeal of a man who was kidnapped, stripped half-naked and tortured before being dumped on a street in Salford, Greater Manchester, has been shown in a grisly video of the twisted crime .
CCTV footage shows the moment the victim, who is not named, is bundled into the back of a car by a group of thugs.
In the clip, a car is seen being reversed down a quiet street and then coming to a halt, with men in balaclavas then getting out.
The victim, who had been out on a date in Manchester city centre, is then dragged forwards by other thugs – also wearing balaclavas – who attempt to shove him into the boot of the car.

It looks like he is punched by one of the masked yobs, who then move him into the back seat after a prolonged struggle.
The victim was wrongly believed to have a lot of money but in reality, he worked in a care home and had "modest" earnings, Manchester Evening News.
He was found with broken bones and cable ties around his neck, wrists and legs on December 18, 2018.
The victim had "grave" injuries, including a bleed on the brain, multiple fractures to his nose, a broken toe and cuts to his feet and shins.
His toes had been cut with a sharp implement and the thugs had removed his trousers and underwear before whipping him with a belt on the back of his legs.
Blake Evers, 24, one of the yobs responsible, was jailed for 19 years at Manchester Crown Court on Tuesday after admitting causing grievous bodily harm with intent and possession of a prohibited firearm.
Evers had no previous convictions but a judge described the brutal kidnapping and torture as a "terrifying baptism into criminal activity."

The others involved in this incident have not been brought before the courts.
Passing sentence Judge Rudland told Evers: "This involved a group of men kidnapping, blackmailing, and assaulting a man with the intention of extracting from him a large sum of money.
"Violence was systematically inflicted upon him in various ways whilst demands of money were made from him from what he thought were six to seven men wearing balaclavas.

"He was in and out of consciousness as the violence continued until eventually, it seemed to dawn on his captors that they weren't achieving the desired result.
"Whilst you (Evers) were clearly at the heart of this enterprise you are the only person to be additionally sentenced for these serious offences which were clearly planned and committed by a group of determined criminals.”
