Man beats, threatens and deserts Canberra victim

Share Canberra's trusted news:

A MAN was allegedly threatened to be killed before being beaten and left in a remote location in NSW on Monday, July 8.

The victim was first assaulted by a man at a residence in Charnwood before he was taken to a residence in Melba, where he was again threatened and assaulted.

Police say the man was then allegedly held at gunpoint and  taken to a vehicle and driven to a remote location in NSW, where the offender left him.  

Enquiries led police to a residence in Charnwood yesterday (July 9) afternoon where they arrested a 30-year-old man, who has been charged with threatening to kill, forcible confinement, assault, making demands by threatening to kill and possessing an offensive weapon.
