THree men are being hunted in connection with an alleged kidnap and assault in a disused building between Lindholme and Auckley.
A 35-year-old man was assaulted by five men at an address on Thorne Road near HMP Lindholme, and was then taken in a white Peugeot van to fields leading off Common Lane where he was further assaulted by three men.
Police are particularly interested in tracing a man who is believed to have been in a car with two children near Common Lane and may have seen the white Peugeot van.
The man sustained a broken arm, had teeth knocked out and suffered cuts and bruises all over his body.
A 23-year-old man has been charged with kidnap and grievous bodily harm and a 27-year-old has been charged with GBH, with both remanded in custody.
