Second teen charged over horrifying nurse abduction

Another teenager has been charged over the horrifying alleged abductions of a nurse on the Gold Coast last week.

The 18-year-old man was charged by police on Tuesday, becoming the second teen charged with armed robbery, torture and deprivation of liberty.

Four men armed with knives and a handgun allegedly assaulted a 25-year-old male nurse while he was on a break outside Pindara Private Hospital early on Friday morning, before forcing him into the boot of his own car.

He was later driven to Parkwood and ordered to get money out of an ATM, before he was found in the boot an hour later in Ashmore when the vehicle crashed into a fence.

The 18-year-old is due to front Southport Magistrates Court today.
