THREE people have been charged with abducting a man from a house in Dundee, forcing him into a car and detaining him against his will.
Emmanuel Nsiah, 34, Lee Younger, 37, and Andrew Ward, 58, allegedly forced their way into David Milne’s home on Spey Drive on Saturday.
They allegedly repeatedly punched Mr Milne on the head, to his injury.
The trio is then alleged to have removed him from his home.
It’s claimed that they then forced Mr Milne into a motor vehicle and detained him there against his will.
Nsiah also allegedly pinned a woman, Leanne McCabe, to the ground with a baseball bat at the home on Spey Drive where she lives with Mr Milne.
All three accused appeared in private at Dundee Sheriff Court.
Nsiah, of Craigmount Place, Younger, of Barra Terrace, and Ward, of St Ninian Terrace, all face one charge on petition of abducting Mr Milne, at Spey Drive, Craigmount Place and Dee Gardens, on Saturday.
They allegedly committed the offence by acting together to force entry into his home on Spey Drive, repeatedly punching him on the head to his injury, removing him from the property, forcing him into a motor vehicle and detaining him against his will.
Nsiah faces a further two charges on the same petition of assaulting Ms McCabe, at the same property on Spey Drive, where she resides with Mr Milne, also on Saturday.
He allegedly committed this offence by pinning her to the ground with a baseball bat.
One resident at Spey Drive said: “I had just entered the close at around 2am.
“I got a bit of a fright when I saw that there was a police officer guarding the front door.”
Another resident on the street said: “I saw at least four police cars in attendance.”
Nash faces a third charge of having diazepam, a class C drug.
The alleged offence took place at Dee Gardens, on the same date.
All three made no plea or declaration in relation to the charges.
The case was continued for further investigation.
