Queenslander accused of abducting a woman in NSW

A Queensland man has been charged over the alleged abduction of a woman north west of Sydney.

The woman was allegedly taken from Cattai at Hawkesbury shortly after 7am on Wednesday.

A 29-year-old from the Sunshine State is accused of forcing his way into a caravan on Cattai Road.


Police will allege the man threatened to stab the 32-year-old man inside and left a short time later taking the resident’s 22-year-old wife with him.

Police were contacted by the 32-year-old man and officers from Hawkesbury Local Area Command commenced an investigation.

Details of the man’s car were circulated as wanted and a short time later it was located at North Parramatta.

With the assistance of officers from Traffic and Highway Patrol the 29-year-old man was arrested and conveyed to Parramatta Police Station.

After receiving treatment for an arm injury at Westmead Hospital he returned to the police station and was later charged with being armed with intent to commit an indictable offence.

The man was granted conditional bail to appear at Windsor Local Court on 9 June 2016.

The man’s vehicle was seized for forensic examination and inquiries into the incident continue.
