Man charged with kidnap of young woman

A 21-YEAR-OLD man has appeared in court in the North charged with kidnapping, false imprisonment and indecent assault of a woman in Co Louth last week.

The 20-year-old woman was allegedly dragged into a car in the Long Walk area of Dundalk in the early hours of Friday morning.

She was taken to a house in Newry, Co Down from which she later escaped and managed to run to safety.

A man was subsequently arrested and later appeared at Newry Magistrates Court.

A 25-year-old female was also arrested in connection with the same incident, but was released on police bail pending further enquiries.
