About two hours later, the lad was bundled into the back of a white Mercedes by Ali’s son Shabaz Hussain, 22.
He beat him up on the back seat while pal Saahil Hussain, also 22, drove back to their home in Oxford.
Once there the teenager, who cannot be identified, apologised before he was kicked and punched by Shabaz and his brother Abdul, 19.
The Ali family’s own doorbell footage showed the boy being ordered to his knees and being threatened by them, Oxford crown court was told.
Saahil admitted kidnap and got a year’s jail suspended.
Shabaz admitted kidnap and ABH and got two years suspended.
Arished Ali and Abdul Hussain admitted ABH and got six months suspended. All were ordered to do unpaid work.
