Hunt for man and woman who 'abducted and assaulted' teen boy


A man and woman abducted a teenager from his home in the NSW Riverina region, took him to another house and assaulted him over Easter.

The boy, in his mid-teens, was hospitalised after reporting the crime to police earlier this month.

He disclosed he was taken from his Griffith home by an unknown man and woman, driven to another home and assaulted over the long weekend at the end of March.

The child abuse and sex crimes squad has now launched Strike Force Coups to locate the pair.

The pair are believed to be well-known to each other.
