Trio charged with deprivation of liberty

POLICE have charged three people with taking an intellectually impaired man from his house against his will.

It will be alleged the trio went to a house in Mt Crosby about 7pm Monday, where they forced the 39-year-old victim into a car and drove him to a house in Fernvale.

Ipswich detectives say the man was released a short time later and was eventually found, uninjured, in a Fernvale park.

It is understood the accused trio and the victim are known to each other.

Police later charged a 26-year-old Fernvale man, a 23-year-old Fernvale woman and a 16-year-old Bundamba boy with one count each of deprivation of liberty, common assault and stealing.

Detectives are investigating possible connections with prior offences.

The man and woman will appear at Ipswich Magistrates Court on June 2, while the teenager will be dealt with under the provisions of the Youth Justice Act.
