Macquarie National News

A 15-year-old boy has been found, hours after being bashed and dragged into a car in Sydney’s south, by his own brother.

The teenager was at a bus stop on Woodville Street at Hurstville late yesterday afternoon when a black Holden stopped in front of him.

Two men allegedly got out and started punching and kicking the boy before forcing him into the backseat of the vehicle.

Witnesses saw the car drive off, sparking a police search for more than six hours.

At about 1.30am, two men, aged 20 and 22, showed up at St George Police Station with the 15-year-old.

They are both related to the boy.

The men were arrested and have been charged with domestic violence assault offences.

They’ve been granted conditional bail to face court next week.

The boy was checked over by paramedics but didn’t need to go to hospital.

Detective Superintendent Danny Doherty tells Ben Fordham the three involved were known to each other.

“These two men were related to the 15-year-old student. One is a cousin and the other one’s a brother.”
