TORONTO - A Toronto man is wanted for kidnapping and torture after four young men were stripped naked, beaten with rocks and robbed at gunpoint while answering an online ad for a car for sale.

The victims were tortured for four hours in an underground garage before escaping the ordeal Monday night.

Toronto Police issued a warrant Saturday for one of the suspects.

Police said an 18-year-old man answered a Kijiji ad and decided to take three friends with him to check out the vehicle at a building in the Jane St.-Grandravine Dr. area.

When the four arrived, the were suddenly ambushed by a group of thugs including one who brandished a gun, said police.

All four were made to strip naked and robbed of their belongings. They were pummelled with rocks, threatened with a machete and had a gun aimed as they were forced to call family and friends to raise money for their release, police said.

The friends eventually escaped and called police.
