They are each due to appear in court in a few weeks time.
Charges have been made in connection with a kidnap in Tameside after a man was assaulted and then “forced into a car”.
Six men have been charged in relation to the seriously distressing incident that occurred in the Tameside town of Dukinfield last Wednesday (24 January 2024), Greater Manchester Police (GMP) has confirmed – with each either remanded into custody or since released on bail.
The charges come after a man was assaulted and forced into a car on Chester Avenue in Dukinfield, but thankfully, police say the victim has since been located “safe and well”.
The six men charged in connection with the incident have been named by police.
Paul Doherty, and Daniel Hague, who are from Bispham in Blackpool, have both been charged and remanded with kidnap, as have Marshall Redfern from Heywood, and Joshua Oakes from Rochdale, and all four men are due to appear at Manchester Minshull Street Crown Court on 1 March 2024.
As well as these four, Edward Dowdall, again from Bispham in Blackpool, was also charged and released on court bail to appear at Minshull Street Crown Court on the same date (1 March 2024), and Jack Lafery, of no fixed abode, was charged and remanded with conspiracy to kidnap.
He was also charged with being ‘concerned’ in the supply of cocaine too.
Mr Lafery was due to appear at Manchester and Salford Magistrates Court yesterday (29 January).
On top of these six charges, GMP has also confirmed that two females, aged 18 and 17, were also arrested on suspicion of conspiracy to kidnap.
