Three people have been charged more than a year after a kidnapping incident which left a man with serious injuries from a car fire in Wainuiomata.
Officers were called to the fire in a car park on Coast Rd early in the morning on October 11, 2016, where they found a man with serious head injuries and burns near a black Holden Cruze, which was well alight.
Fifteen months later, the police investigation into the incident has lead to three people being charged.
A 31-year-old man from Masterton, 36-year-old women from Palmerston North, and a 25-year-old man from Wainuiomata have all been charged with kidnapping, aggravated robbery, wounding with intent to cause grievous bodily harm, and arson.
