An attempted kidnapping led to the arrest of two men and two women in Matakana yesterday.
Police say the four alleged offenders arrived at an address in Smith Road around 10:05am. They are then alleged to have assaulted the victim, who was an associate of the group. A firearm is also alleged to have been involved.
Police say the victim managed to escape his assailants, and soon after authorities were alerted to the incident and acted on information they received, leading them to a Mahurangi address where they located the alleged offenders.
Two males, aged 37 and 22, have been arrested and charged with attempted kidnapping and commission of a crime with a firearm. Two women, aged 21 and 19, were arrested on similar charges.
All four are appearing in the North Shore District Court today.
