Chloe Ayling kidnap arrest: Brother of suspect arrested

The U.K.'s National Crime Agency announced August 16 that Michal Konrad Herba was arrested near Birmingham on a warrant issued by Italian authorities.

They said in a statement: "Officers from West Midlands Police and Emsou (East Midlands Special Operations Unit) this morning arrested the brother of Lukasz Pawel Herba in connection with the kidnapping of Chloe Ayling".

Ayling told police that when she arrived at the studio for the Milan photo shoot, she was drugged, gagged, bound, stuffed into a bag, put into the boot of a auto and driven to a village near Turin in northwest Italy.

The NCA said Michal Konrad Herba was detained at an address in Tividale, near West Bromwich.

Lukasz Herba, 30, has already been charged with kidnapping and extortion.
