A MAN has been abducted at gunpoint and tortured before being bundled into his own car and driven to a bank to withdraw cash in a terrifying daylight attack in Logan.

Four people allegedly stormed the 43-year-old man’s home about 10am on Friday and demanded money along with his car.

Police said the group pulled a gun on the man and assaulted him before forcing him to sign over his vehicle.

After signing over his car, police said the man was then forced to make arrangements for cash to be withdrawn from the local bank.

The group allegedly bundled the man into his own car and drove him to the bank to withdraw the money before driving off and leaving him behind.

Police said the victim knew at least one of his attackers.

He was taken to hospital with various injuries, including a broken nose and lacerations to his head.

Three people have since been arrested and charged over the incident.

A 19-year-old man from Kingston and a 30-year-old man from Woodridge have been charged with two counts each of armed robbery and one count of deprivation of liberty, unlawful use of a motor vehicle and torture.

The older man has also been charged with dangerous driving, while a 37-year-old woman from Regents Park has been charged with unlawful use of a motor vehicle.

The two men are due to appear in Beeleigh Magistrates Court on Monday, while the woman will appear on April 30.

Investigations by detectives from Logan Criminal Investigation Branch are continuing.
