He put a knife to the terrified man’s throat and forced him to transfer money to his bank account.

The 67-year-old victim was then bundled into a car, taken to an apartment and had to transfer more cash.

When the man’s son rang, Daniels took him home to greet his boy while he hid out of sight.

The man signaled that he was being held and was taken to hospital. Daniels was later arrested.

Police said the “well-executed” 2021 kidnapping in Staines-upon-Thames, Surrey, was like a psychological thriller.

Daniels, of Maidenhead, Berks, was jailed at Kingston Crown Court on charges of kidnapping and robbery.

The investigating officer, Detective Constable Claire Catcheside, said: “This was an extremely traumatic situation for the victim and this is reflected in the sentence handed down to Daniels.

“This man is an extremely dangerous and callous individual who will spend the foreseeable future behind bars where he belongs.”
