The arrested men forced the man and the woman into a van.
Once they reached their destination, they tied them up and gagged them before assaulting them.

The victims suffered various injuries. The woman required stitches as a result of the cuts inflicted by the attackers, who are accused of crimes of kidnapping, injury, threats, road safety and drug trafficking.
