Police have arrested and charged a third person after a man was kidnapped and assaulted last Wednesday (2 October).

Around 7:40 am, police allege two men and a woman forcibly confined a man to a residence in Moncrieff, during which time he was assaulted and threatened. After a number of hours, the man was released by the offenders.

Following an investigation, a 26-year-old man and a 29-year-old man were arrested and faced court.

Police arrested a 21-year-old woman yesterday for her alleged involvement in the kidnapping. She will face the ACT Magistrates Court this morning charged with kidnapping a person who suffers grievous bodily harm at the time. Police will oppose bail.

Anyone with information about this incident is urged to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000, or via the Crime Stoppers ACT website. Information can be provided anonymously.
