A third person has been charged with kidnapping over an incident in Bangor at the weekend.

Police said four people abducted a man as he came out of a hostel at Central Avenue at 1700 GMT on Saturday.

A 21-year-old woman is expected to appear at Bangor Magistrates Court next month.

Earlier, a man and woman in their 20s were charged with kidnapping. Another man in his 20s was released pending a report to the PPS.

The alleged victim was tied up and bundled into a car but escaped shortly afterwards at Skipperstown Road.

Police said he received minor injuries.
