Kidnapping accused appear in court
7:00am Wednesday 19th March 2014 in News
Four young men have gone on trial accused of kidnapping a teenager and ordering him to strip naked in a field.
Yesterday the group, who deny the charge, appeared at Oxford Crown Court and heard the prosecution outline the case against them.
They are Mohammed Hussain, 22, of Marigold Walk; Liam Hutchison, 20, of Leach Road; Cameron Wilkins, 18, of Reedmace Road, and a 16-year-old who cannot be named for legal reasons.
John Law, prosecuting, said on May 20 last year the group used threats and intimidation to kidnap 18-year-old Callum Pieton over a £150 drug debt he allegedly owed Wilkins.
The trial continues.
