A TEENAGER has been kidnapped at knifepoint and assaulted by a group of youths who had earlier terrorised him at his northern New South Wales home.
Police say the group threw bricks at a car and through the windows of a house in Heffron Street, Tweed Heads, about 7.30pm (AEST) yesterday.
"Four of the group ... then confronted the 16-year-old male inside the house and forced him into a car,'' police said.
The abducted youth was driven to a bushland near the Tweed Coolangatta Golf Course and assaulted.
The group then drove off.
The injured teenager, who suffered facial cuts, was picked up by a passer-by and driven to Tweed Heads Hospital.

Have you considered legalizing handguns?
I mean really, think about it.
Because if I move there, I am bringing an arsenal.

So have the local police rounded up this gang of hoolums? That's my big question, or is no one doing anything?
Police have charged a 20-year-old man over the abduction, assault and robbery of a 17-year-old on the New South Wales far north coast last week. Police say a group of about a dozen youths armed with batons and knives threw stones at a house in Tweed Heads South at about 7:00pm (AEST) last Thursday. They then entered the building and allegedly threatened the four men and a woman who were inside. Four of the occupants managed to escape and seek help at a service station, but police allege one man was forced into a nearby car at knife-point. Police say the 17-year-old was driven to bushland on Kirkwood Road where he was assaulted, robbed and pushed into the Tweed River. He managed to walk to a nearby club for assistance, and was taken to Tweed Heads Hospital suffering cuts, facial injuries and a fracture to his back. Police arrested a 20-year-old man at a home in Tweed Heads South late yesterday afternoon. He was taken to Tweed Heads Police Station, questioned, then charged with take/detain in company for advantage and aggravated robbery. He was refused bail and is due to appear at Lismore Local Court today. Police are continuing investigations and anyone with information is urged to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
