BELGRADE, Serbia — The grandfather of Jelena Djokovic, the wife of Novak Djokovic, was found tied up in a field after unknown assailants broke into his house in central Serbia.

Djokovic’s press team says in a statement on Thursday the family is in “complete shock over what happened” to 85-year-old Miloslav Radisavljevic.

They say attackers broke into Radisavljevic’s house, kidnapped him, and took him to a field several kilometers away.

Police said, without identifying Radisavljevic, they found a man early Thursday tied to a power pole close to his house in Ljig, some 50 kilometers south of Belgrade.

The man told the police he was also robbed by the two masked assailants of about $260 and a cell phone. Police say the man had no visible injuries.
