One victim allegedly had his teeth pulled out after being held captive for five days with heavily armed police officers who eventually broke into the house to rescue him.
NSW Police and tactical officers stormed the property at the corner of Chelmsford Avenue, Belmore, in south-west Sydney, on Tuesday night.
The man being held against his will inside the house is believed to be a relative of a person suspected of being involved in a drug deal gone bad.
He was imprisoned inside the Belmore home and allegedly tortured for five days before police rescued him shortly after 6:00 p.m. Tuesday night.
New South Wales police stormed a property in Belmore, south-west Sydney, and rescued a kidnapping victim.

“Six people have been arrested as part of an ongoing investigation by the Robbery and Serious Crimes Squad,” police said Wednesday.
“Two were taken to Granville Police Station and another four to Campsie Police Station where they are assisting police with their investigations.”
