Ridiculous lifestyle of mysterious Hamzy clan operative allegedly kidnapped from Manly Street

The mysterious Hamzy clan operative who was reportedly kidnapped in an exclusive Sydney suburb lives on bail in a lavish $6 million mansion overlooking the water.

Rodrigo Henriquez, 39, was reportedly attacked with a crowbar and then bundled into a car by a group of men outside his home on Oyama Avenue, in Manly, around 9:30 am on Sunday.

Witnesses contacted police who pulled over the Toyota Hilux about 7 miles away on Warringah Road, in Forestville, a short time later.

Four men were arrested and Henriquez was taken to hospital for treatment, where he was treated for injuries.

The multimillion-dollar house in Northern Beaches, the center of the alleged kidnapping, has been rented since December 2020.

The four-bedroom home with a pool and views of Manly Beach spans 488 square feet and costs a whopping $4,100 per week.

Property records show that the home was purchased in 2007 for $2,355,000, but is valued at $6.79 million in today’s market.

While little is known about Henriquez, he is believed to have been involved in a high-profile brawl between feuding Sydney gangs – the Alameddine and Hamzy networks – at Ballina Airport in February 2021.

Footage from the incident reportedly shows senior Hamzy member Ghassan Amoun and Henriquez exchanging blows with Alammeddine ally John Ray Bayssarri and another associate.

Henriquez was charged with assault and has been released on bail pending trial.

The alleged kidnapping on Sunday has upset residents of Manly, where homeowners pay an average of $4,065,000 for a home in the popular beachside suburb.

A local resident told Nine News she called police after seeing four men in balaclavas waiting for Henriquez in a car and then pounced on him as he walked by.

Police were reportedly forced to chase the car through Forestville after it failed to stop when officers tried to pull over the Toyota Hilux.

The vehicle finally came to a stop on Starkey Street after officers deployed road spikes.

The four men arrested were taken to Manly Police Station and charged by detectives overnight.

Talonoa Leaaetoa, Henry Kupa, Erica Hema and Sonny Siope Puleiku, aged between 19 and 25, have each been charged with five counts.

They include kidnapping in company with intent to commit a serious crime – actual bodily harm; join a criminal group contribute to criminal activity; are transported in a means of transport that has been taken without the owner’s permission; face blackened/disguised with intent to commit a criminal offence; and fight it out.

Leaaetoa, 24 and from Sefton, was also charged with police pursuit – don’t stop – reckless driving; and the use of an offensive weapon to avoid lawful detention.

The group did not appear in Hornsby court on Monday as their charges were first mentioned.

Their lawyer Mahmoud Abbas told the media it was “much too early to make a decision” about what will happen in the future, but confirmed that the men would apply for release.

“It is much too early to determine what the evidence is, but once all relevant material has been released, we will make a decision and move forward from there,” he said.

Mr Abbas had yet to contact his clients when he left court but said he is “sure they are fine”.

“At this stage it is an allegation and everyone has the right to remain silent and presumed innocence,” he said.

The case was adjourned to be heard in Manly local court in March.

Henriquez has since been released from the hospital.
