Queensland police said the 25-year-old Gympie man allegedly drove a woman to Toolara Forest, zip-tied her hands behind her back and bound her feet with string before driving off.
He returned a short time later and cut the victim free, but made her walk on a dirt track “for a considerable distance”, before she was allowed to re-enter the vehicle when another car approached.
It will be further alleged that on another occasion at a Gympie home, the woman was allegedly punched in the face before being “grabbed around the neck and chocked in a headlock”, police said in a statement.
