Just about the scariest thing that could happen to anyone: last night, Williamsburg real estate developer Menachem Stark was reportedly kidnapped after leaving his office, as two men approached him and forced him into the back of a white minivan. Stark is said to have been carrying around $4,000 in cash on him at the time, and his wife alerted Shomrim after he failed to make it home.
Stark’s brother has since offered a $100,000 reward for his return, no questions asked. So keep your eyes and ears out, and per usual, if anyone approaches you with a van, get away from them. Always bears repeating.
