A second person has been charged over an alleged kidnapping in Colyton.
About 4pm Saturday, June 26, officers attached to Nepean Police Area Command went to a home on Richard Crescent, Colyton, and spoke with a 28-year-old man and 38-year-old woman.
The duo told police they’d been detained in the house by a man armed with a firearm since Thursday, June 24 and tied up with chains, wire, tape and rope. Both had allegedly been assaulted over the two days.
They were taken to Nepean Hospital for treatment and have since been released.
A 20-year-old man was arrested and charged that day and remains before the courts.
Following inquiries, a 27-year-old woman was arrested on Henry Street, Penrith, about 1pm yesterday.
She was taken to Penrith Police Station where she was charged with two counts of ‘take/detain in company with intent to get advantage’, ‘occasion actual bodily harm’ and two counts of ‘assault occasioning actual bodily harm’.
The woman was refused bail to appear at Penrith Local Court today.
