MAN CHARGED WITH KIDNAPPING OFFENCES ON THE CENTRAL COAST

A 55-year-old man has been charged with wounding and kidnapping offences after an alleged altercation on the Central Coast.

On Monday night, two men, aged 53 and 55, and a woman aged 62, were at a Wadalba caravan park when a dispute broke out.

Police say the 55-year-old man assaulted the woman before threatening them both.

Early Tuesday morning, the younger man approached a neighbour to call for help.

Shortly after police arrested the 55-year-old, charging him with four offences including assault occasioning actual bodily harm and detain for advantage.

The woman was transported to Royal North Shore Hospital in a stable condition.
