Teen tells court of his alleged drug debt kidnap
8:00am Thursday 20th March 2014 in News
A TEENAGER has described to a jury how he was allegedly kidnapped by four people from Bicester over a drug debt.
John Law, prosecuting, said on May 20 last year the group used threats and intimidation to abduct 18-year-old Callum Pieton and force him to strip naked in a field.
Mohammed Hussain, 22, of Marigold Walk; Liam Hutchison, 20, of Leach Road; Cameron Wilkins, 18, of Reedmace Road, and a 16-year-old who cannot be named for legal reasons, all deny the charge.
Giving evidence over a video link yesterday, Callum Pieton said he was walking with a friend in Bicester when a car containing Hutchison, Hussain and Wilkins pulled up next to them.
He said: “(Hussain) got out of the car and I went over to the car to give Cameron some money.
“He was telling me to get into the car, but I didn’t want to get in. Then he just had his hands on my back and pushed me in.
“(Hussain) is a big lad so I tried to resist but I just got thrown into the back seat.”
Asked how he felt after this at the time Mr Pieton replied: “Very nervous, I didn’t know what was going to happen to me.”
The trial at Oxford Crown Court continues.
