Man charged with abduction and torture
Police have charged a 46-year-old man over the alleged abduction and torture of another man, who was found clinging to life in bushland north of Brisbane.
The victim, 47, was discovered unconscious near a black van dumped in thick bushland at Morayfield in the Moreton Bay Region around 4pm on June 19.
Police allege that he was left with severe brain injuries after being seriously assaulted some three days earlier.
Earlier this month, Queensland Police launched an appeal for anyone who saw the black Mercedes Benz van entering bushland off Morayfield Road to contact authorities.
They released vision of the vehicle and the victim being located as part of the appeal.
On Monday, a Morayfield man was charge with a range of serious offences, including grievous bodily harm, assault occasioning bodily harm, deprivation of liberty, torture, supplying dangerous drugs, trafficking dangerous drugs and unlawful use of a motor vehicle.
He was also charged with contravening a domestic violence order, in a matter unrelated to this alleged incident.
The man was refused bail and will front Caboolture Magistrates Court on January 13.
